Wondering how your credits will transfer?

The Loretto Heights School of Nursing has a credit transfer policy aimed to ensure RNs with an associate’s degree are given the maximum amount of credit possible. Here’s how it works: if you graduated from a regionally accredited institution, completed an ADN program requiring a minimum of 66 semester hours, and have a current license, you’re eligible for a lump sum transfer of at least 66 semester hours.

We highly encourage you to request an unofficial transcript evaluationIt's a free service and provides you with a written notice of what will likely transfer to Regis University and what's left to complete your BSN. This is the best first step when considering completing your BSN.
