Approval of Undistributed Courses
Students may progress toward the B.S.N. degree by applying undistributed course
work toward general education or Nursing course credit.
The Admission, Progression, Graduation (APG) Committee reviews the student
request to approve or deny credit as appropriate.
The student submits Course Approval Form to the academic advisor for the
APG Committee that includes:
a. A written request to the APG Committee to approve the undistributed course,
specifically noting the general education or nursing requirement the course
is to meet.
b. The course syllabus with goals and objectives or course description from an
official website our college bulletin from the transferring academic institution.
The APG Committee responds to the student in writing. If approved, the
academic advisor applies the course to the student’s degree plan.
Undistributed courses are courses transferred from another academic institution
that are not IU Southeast-equivalent courses, however, the student is granted credit
for the course on the credit transfer report.
Course Time Limit
Knowledge and competencies developed in courses that fulfill the requirements
for anatomy, physiology, microbiology, statistics, and life span development
are considered to be time-limited for individuals pursuing an undergraduate
Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.
If any of these courses were taken more than seven (7) years prior to admission
to the nursing undergraduate degree, the program applicant must validate the
related knowledge and competencies through testing, portfolio, or repeating the
course to be eligible for admission and/or progression.
The Registered Nurse student pursuing a B.S.N. degree is exempt from this policy.
