    Hi, I am new to this site so please bare with me. I am currently a nursing student at TNCC and new to make a 90 on one of my nursing finals. If I don't make it, I was wondering about transfereing to MCI. What type of GPA do you need and will my NUR classes transfere? Any info I would really, really, really appreciate. Thanks!
    I am not sure about the GPA needed for the program. I had a 3.5 from my previous degree and I was told that was awesome by my adviser, but I found it just average. So it makes me wonder what kind of GPA's do they see?

    My classes transferred with A's, I have heard from some other students that if your grades are below a B they will not transfer.

    I can tell you that our grading scale is insanity! You need a 76% to pass every class, The grading scale is (3% and up A, 83 (I think) and up a B, and 76 to 81 is C. There is no D in the grading scale. You have to get a 3.7 GPA to get any honors.

    I hope that helps! Interviews are going on now for the Jan 24th program start date.
