Transfer of Graduate Credit
A maximum of six graduate-level semester credit hours can be applied to SON programs in the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing for course(s) previously taken from outside the School of Nursing. Course(s) must have been completed and grade received within five years of starting the degree program (first day of first term of enrollment) at JHSON.
DNP Executive Program students are required to take 40 credits at JHU.

|NR.210.606||Biostatistics for Evidence-Based Practice||3|

All transfer of credit decisions made by the program director are final.
Students wishing to transfer any course from inside or outside the university must have earned a minimum grade of B in the course. Course(s) must have been completed and grade received within five years of starting the degree program (first day of first term of enrollment) at JHSON. The course must have the equivalent number of credits or higher for transfer review.
The request to transfer credit must be concluded prior to the second semester registration period. If a student needs to take a course outside JHU once they have matriculated at the JHSON, they must obtain preauthorization prior to registering for the course.
Students who have taken graduate core courses at Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (listed above) within five years of starting new degree program (first day of first term of enrollment) will automatically be granted transfer credit.
It is the student’s responsibility to work with the Office of Financial Aid to determine if any changes to the plan of study will change eligibility for financial aid. Students receiving VA benefits should also contact the Office of Student Enrollment and Account Management (SEAM) to determine if changes to the plan of study will change eligibility for these benefits.
