Bachelor of Science in Nursing: RN to BSN

Request for Unofficial Transcript Review

The ECU College of Nursing (ECU CON) offers assistance to prospective RN/BSN students by completing an unofficial review of a complete set of transcripts. ECU Admissions then completes the official transfer evaluation and awards transfer credit when you apply for admission to ECU.

All prospective students should carefully review information and admission requirements for both ECU Undergraduate Admissions (http://www.ecu.edu/admissions) and the RN/BSN option (http://www.nursing.ecu.edu/rnbsn.htm).

Review information/admission requirements for the RN/BSN option on the College of Nursing website (www.nursing.ecu.edu). Prospective students may submit a request for unofficial review by providing the following documentation:

  1. Collect a transcript from each college/university you have attended to complete your personal file. If you have an international transcript, the transcript should be evaluated by an international education evaluation agency that is a member of NACES:  www.naces.org.  The evaluation should reflect the US equivalency for course titles, course grades, semester hours attempted and passed per course, date course taken and degree earned.  A copy of the report should be sent with your other transcripts/information.
  2. Complete the coversheet,which you can download frrom this link: http://www.nursing.ecu.edu/download/RNBSN_TranRevCover.pd.
  3. Include a copy of your transcript from each college/university attended. Transfer credit noted on a transcript is not sufficient.

Note: Due to responsibilities to current students, prospective students are asked to allow 4-6 weeks for this review once all transcripts are received at the CON. At particularly busy times (advising/registration and beginning/ending of a semester) within the University/CON, the response time may be extended by a few weeks.

Once you receive your letter stating the results of your review, you can use this letter as your tentative checklist as you complete your remaining prerequisite courses. Students are encouraged to complete all prerequisite courses as soon as possible; at least within two years from the date of the unofficial review as program requirements are subject to change.
