It doesnt matter at all where you take your prereqs. I went to GPC and then transferred to clayton state
Uh, this is not accurate...at all. I would say you were very lucky.
This is the procedure you need to follow if you want to take your pre-reqs at another college than the one you plan on attending for nursing school.
1. Get a college from the school you want to take your pre-reqs from..or print out the FULL course description from the courses you want to take.
2. Set up an appointment with an advisor from the college that you want to attend...YES, they will do this even if you are not a student yet.
3. The goal: To get them to review the course description to see IF they will accept the course for transfer...BEFORE you even take it.
Many students are 100% unaware that colleges offer this type of advising and it is critical if you know in advance you are going to transfer. Some colleges have odd requirements such as the fact that there are certain courses that you HAVE to take there...my nursing school had a very specific math course that you could not have transferred in, etc.
However, just because you take a course at one college doesn't automatically mean it will transfer to another...nor will they tell you it will. They have to look at the courses in order to make that determination.
