    I recently entered a Bachelor's degree nursing program online. I had lots of trouble transferring credits from a local technical college. I did finally get most of them accepted.

    Yes - about seven times, in writing, over the course of a year - finally bringing in her supervisor. I did get the credit. The last time, she said, "you never really asked me about that specific course" ... so based on my experience, I would write it as I have ___ courses from ___ university.

    Course ____ has the same content as ____.

    Or in my case.. Nurs 4300 is obviously an upper division nursing course, since it has a course number 3000 or above - please either give me credit for the upper division nursing elective or explain to me why it does not count.

    I am about to go through this. I have a degree from another state school and when I look at my transfer credits it is a horrific mess. UTA seems to be seriously behind the times. All of my other schools have accepted online transcripts,and there are common course numbers within the state, and yet UTA only accepts transcripts by mail (and lost mine twice) and all of these common courses aren't transferring to the correct categories. I was so frustrated on admission that I have left off fixing my transfer credits til the end. I may regret it.
