Creighton welcomes transfer students from around the world at the beginning of both our spring and fall semesters. Transfer students are those who:
- Have been out of high school for at least one semester and
- Have completed at least 10 credit hours of college-level coursework
If you graduated from high school prior to 2016, you may be better served by the College of Professional Studies, a university unit dedicated to serving adult students seeking bachelor’s degree completion.
As an admitted Creighton student, you’ll benefit from the full Creighton experience, including substantial merit-based scholarships and financial aid, personalized instruction, and opportunities to get involved through student organizations. Most importantly, you’ll hit the ground running thanks to our generous credit-transference policy and feel right at home in our tight-knit, supportive community.
Due to our direct-entry bachelor’s of science in nursing program, our traditional BSN nursing program is generally full with incoming freshmen; therefore, we do not have space for incoming transfer students. We offer a one-year accelerated bachelor’s of science in nursing (ANC) program for students who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree in another discipline. If you’d like more information about the accelerated Nursing program, please email our recruitment team in the College of Nursing at nursing [at] creighton [dot] edu.
The priority deadline for spring 2021 transfer students is December 1, 2020. We will still accept applications, on a space available basis, after December 1, 2020 keeping in mind that the first day of class is January 27, 2021.
We encourage students looking to transfer for fall 2021 to complete their application by July 1, 2021 to allow ample time to receive an admission and financial aid decision and work with their academic advisor on a class schedule that will set them up for success in the fall semester. We will still accept applications, on a space available basis, after July 1, 2021 keeping in mind the first day of class is August 18, 2021.
