Students who transfer credits for ENG-1020 College Composition II with a grade of "C" or higher and do not have credit for ENG-1010 College Composition I will have ENG-1010 waived, but the required 6 credit hours in Communication/Mathematics/Natural & Physical Sciences must be earned.


NURS-1250 LPN to RN Transitions I may only be taken once. 


After successful completion of NURS-1260 LPN to RN Transitions II and prior to enrollment in NURS-1210 Concepts of Nursing Care for Patients in Community and Behavioral Health Settings, students will be required to apply for Career Transfer Assurance Guide/Industry-Recognized Transfer Assurance Guide credit by completing the verification form through Ohio Department of Higher Education and supplying necessary documentation in order to receive credit for NURS-1000, 1010, 1200, 1220, and 1240 (15 credit hours).


A grade of "B" or higher is required in all science coursework for graduation.


MATH-1240 Contemporary Mathematics taken prior to Fall 2024 will be accepted to meet the mathematics requirement for this program.

MATH-1140, MATH-1141, MATH-1200, MATH-1270, and MATH-1280 can no longer count towards fulfilling the college-level mathematics requirement.  These courses were re-classified as developmental mathematics by the state of Ohio in 2016.  Tri-C established a 5-year transitioning window for students who had completed these courses prior to 2016 to apply them towards meeting graduation requirements, which expired in Summer 2021. It is highly recommended to see a counselor to determine the appropriate math required for your current major.
