Nursing Transfer Information

Limited Capacity

Admission of qualified transfer applicants will be dependent upon available seats within an appropriate class. Transfer applicants to the Nursing major are only eligible to begin the second year of the curriculum. There are no seats available for transfer students in the first year of the program.

Application Process

Transfer applications will be reviewed at the end of the spring semester only. Current UVM students apply by completing the online Nursing Intrauniversity transfer application.. External applicants may either download or request an undergraduate application from the Office of Admissions.

ALL transfer applicants must also fill out and return to the CNHS Office of Students Services an Essential Functions form for nursing majors. The purpose of this document is to assure that all students entering the programs in this College know and understand the clinical and academic requirements. Nursing and Health Sciences students must be able to meet these standards either with or without reasonable accommodations.

Click here for the CNHS Undergraduate Student Handbook, which contains the Essential Functions for each major. Students are required to review the handbook and sign the last page.
