Old credits??


Specializes in Pediatric Home Care. Has 4 years experience.

I'm hoping to start an RN bridge program January 2015. I have pre req credits starting from 2000, would that be an issue? Would I have to retake those old credits? My science credits start in 2003. TY

You need to talk to someone at the school you want to attend to see how they handle this issue. It is very common for science & math credits to 'expire' after 5 years so you may have to retake these classes. It may end up as a positive if you make higher grades! Best of luck to you on pursuing your RN.

Most schools have a limit on previous credits, usually 5 years. My school allows credits to be up to 30 years old if you are obtaining a second degree from the school.

You will need to look on the program's website or call the school to find out about transferring credits.

I transferred schools so my old credits show up as transferred but with 2010 date, I wonder if that will help me??

You'll need to send transcripts from every school. They will see the true date that each credit was obtained.
