    Concorde won't need your previous college transcripts because no credits transfer to Concorde anyway. Just as long as you can come up with the money to pay them, they're satisfied.

    I bet you will need your transcripts. They always ask for your transcripts, it dont matter if you went to ice cream cone making school. When I went to LVN school they made me go and get my MA transcript and you know I was not about to get any credit for that . If you have taken A&P or nutrition those may transfer but thats about it. I went to a private hospital based LVN program and I could have transfered my classes in if they were from a community college/university. There is one thing I do know for sure, those classes you take at Concord will not transfer to any other college/university because of accrediation differences. Good luck to you

    Concorde does not require transcripts for previous college coursework. Credits do not transfer to Concorde and Concorde's credits do not transfer to other colleges. Basically, the only benefit from Concorde that one can receive if they choose to continue on passed their LVN program is having an LVN status when applying to another college for the LVN--->RN/BSN bridge. I was told by Concorde when I inquired about credits transferring that certain colleges acknowledge Concorde's program but they would not tell me which colleges may allow for further education. I sent inquiries to two different colleges in regards to the effects of Concorde's program and acceptance into their bridge programs. Neither college has replied so far.

    They will require your high school diploma or official transcripts from your high school, no matter how much college you have attended. And you will not be accepted if you don't produce your high school diploma or transcript. So get it asap if you plan to attend soon.

    I attended a high-priced LVN program in California that was similar to Concorde in that it was a career college that was not accredited. I had attended some college and completed medical assistant school, but the school did not need transcripts from prior colleges or tech schools. All they needed was proof that I completed high school via official high school transcripts or the actual high school diploma.

    Me too. Hopefully I'll find out more as the program goes on. Concorde is very selective as to what information is released about the college and it's programs. If I find out anything I'll be sure to post it up!!
