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 12 credit hours of college-level coursework
If you graduated from high school prior to 2013, 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 College of Nursing program, our nursing program is generally full with incoming freshmen; therefore, we do not have space for incoming transfer students. We offer a one-year accelerated Nursing program for students who already have a bachelor’s degree. If you’d like more information about the accelerated Nursing program please email Shannon Cox at shannoncox [at] creighton [dot] edu.
The Priority Deadline for Spring 2017 Transfer Students is December 1st. The Priority Deadline for Fall 2017 Transfer Students is May 1st.
