1. transferring to uh-manoa
since you are applying for nursing for spring ‘12 i am assuming you have been accepted for fall ’11. after this current semester or after taking summer classes send your updated transcript to uh manoa asap because it takes about 2 months to evaluate your courses with uh manoa course equivalencies.(deciding if it is a fw, dp,fs) don’t worry too much about it like i did. i had to wait about a month into fall term to get my evaluated transcript. the advisor (didn’t help at all) didn’t know what to say, and told me should consider taking my foundation math, english etc classes again (freaked me out). i just waited it through and most of my classes transferred properly. if some of your english or science classes are counted as electives and you need them as wi, db etc take it up with the department and see if they can sign off on it as a wi etc.
2. applying to uh manoa nursing.
link to application: http://www.nursing.hawaii.edu/sites/...2010_09_15.pdf
uh manoa considers 3 factors:
1-cumulative gpa of all institutions (academic track record f’s are a red flag)
3-nursing prerequisite gpa
*!* if you read under the bolded/underlined ‘prerequisite courses’ in the application it states that “any combination of 16 or more prerequisite credits listed below must be satisfactorily completed at the time of application, of which must include 1 phyl lecture/lab & 1 other science lecture course (i.e. **dp course or micr 130). applicants must also be enrolled in all remaining prerequisites at the time of application to be considered.”
your nursing prerequisite gpa is solely based on a combination of your best 16 credits including 1 phyl lecture/lab (4 credits) + dp (3 credits) + 3 other perquisite classes with the highest grades (9 credits)= 16 credits
i have a dp science (geog) but i got a c, so will they count that if i have micro and am currently enrolled in another dp during application process?
yes if that is the only dp course you have completed at the time of your application micro will be counted as the required dp prereq.
another important thing: states on the application, to be considered for nursing “you must be enrolled in all remaining prerequisites” when you apply
