Articulation agreements are formal agreements between institutions to provide guidance to students regarding transfer of credit. Nebraska Methodist College may accept credit for courses taken elsewhere provided the educational institution is accredited by a regional accrediting body and, where applicable; the program is approved by the state and is accredited by professional organizations.

Transferring to Nebraska Methodist College from a community college or other institution has become a popular path to obtaining a college degree. We welcome transfer applicants from all schools and backgrounds. To be considered for transfer admission to NMC, you must first ensure that you meet NMC admission requirements and any NMC academic program requirements.
Credit for courses taken elsewhere may be accepted for transfer from another college provided:
- Course credits are listed on the official, raised-seal transcript mailed to the College from the former institution.
- The educational institution is accredited by a regional accrediting body and, where applicable, the program is approved by the state and is accredited by professional organizations.
- Course is determined to be comparable to one required in the curriculum or is considered to be appropriate as an elective.
- Grade of "C-" or better is achieved at the certificate and undergraduate levels and a grade of "B" or better at the graduate level. Grades earned in transfer courses will not be used in determining the student's cumulative grade point average, unless the student has already matriculated and has been given permission to enroll at another institution. All courses accepted for transfer will be noted on the transcript. Such transfer courses will be included in the total number of hours passed.
Transfer of Credit Policies:
- The Registrar reviews official transcripts of the student from accredited educational institutions. In consultation with the General Education Department, the Registrar authorizes transferability of general education courses. The Program Director is responsible for the determination of the transferability of professional/technical courses.
- Courses older than five years will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for transferability. To maximize the chance of student success in any program, the College recommends that a student retake any course older than five years regardless of whether or not the course is transferable.
- Syllabi for nursing courses taken previously will be evaluated for transfer of credit if taken within three years of the time of application. Nursing courses between three and five years old will be considered but not necessarily awarded credit. Nursing courses five years and older will not be awarded transfer credit. [Note: This does not apply to LPN, MSN or RN advanced-standing applicants.]
- Courses considered for transfer are reviewed to assure that they are comparable to ones required in the curriculum or meet requirements to be used as an elective.
- Partial credit may be considered with directed study to meet deficiencies.
- The Registrar will work with the appropriate Associate Dean on a case-by-case basis to determine equivalency for quarter credit hours from transfer institutions.
- The student and the student's academic advisor are notified in writing by the Registrar of courses recognized for transfer.
- If the student has a question about any course(s) not being recognized for transfer, such questions are to be directed, in writing, to the Registrar within 30 days of receipt of official transferred courses.
- Undergraduate Students: No course with a grade below "C-"is considered for transfer of undergraduate credit.
- Graduate Students: No course with a grade below "B" or 3.0 is considered for transfer of graduate credit.
