Official transcripts (in original sealed/unopened envelope) for all lower and upper division courses ​completed at any and all regionally accredited U.S. institutions (or equivalent), regardless of applicability to nursing requirements will be required. Official transcripts are not required for courses completed at Shasta College.

Failure to submit all transcripts from all other schools will result in disqualification of application. All prerequisite and graduation requirements must be complete and final grades posted on official transcripts; in-progress work for prerequisites or graduation requirements will result in disqualification of application.
Prerequisite courses completed at other regionally accredited U.S. colleges or universities (or equivalent) must be equivalent to Shasta College courses. For determination of course equivalency, official transcripts and course descriptions for prerequisite courses will be required. All prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. Course descriptions for prerequisite and graduation requirement courses, only, must accompany the academic transcript for the purpose of determining course equivalency. Course descriptions must come from the specific catalog year in which the course was taken and may be obtained from the college catalog where courses were taken. Withdraw (W) is zero points, consistent with the methodology used for the state and college prerequisite validation study.

If multiple math courses, whatever math is used to satisfy the Associate Degree in Science requirements will be the letter grade used for the Math requirement. One (1) passing science pre-requisite grade (B or C) may be replaced with a higher passing grade without penalty.

Applicants who have passed the AP exam for English or Math will be scored as follows:
Score of 5 or 4 = A
Score of 3 = B
AP exams with scores of 2 or lower are considered unsatisfactory and cannot be used to meet prerequisite or graduation requirements. Those scores do not qualify for a letter grade or for points.
