When a second degree applicant is admitted to the program, the transcript is reviewed for transfer of credit. Second degree students must fulfill the same course requirements as other students in Villanova University's BSN Program which includes a total of 28 credits in Physical Science, 18 credits in Humanities (to include a philosophy equivalent) and 12 credits in Social/Behavioral Sciences (to include a general psychology equivalent). Credits for courses that have been taken at another college or university may be transferred if the course is required in the program and if the grade is "C" or above. In order to determine course equivalency, the course description from the catalog of the outside institution is compared to the course description in the Villanova University catalog; course syllabi are reviewed if necessary.
