Official transcripts (in original sealed/unopened envelope) for all lower and upper division courses ​completed at any and all regionally accredited U.S. institutions, regardless of applicability to nursing requirements will be required. Official transcripts are not required for courses completed at Shasta College.
 
Prerequisite courses completed at other regionally accredited United States colleges or universities 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 and the final grade must be posted on the transcript. Course descriptions for prerequisite 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.
