This degree plan is designed to meet the needs of students who plan to major in Nursing and transfer to a four-year college or university. The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board approves the field of study in Nursing included in this degree. This degree plan will constitute a semester credit hour transfer block to any public Texas four-year college or university with a Nursing Major.

Transferring students shall not be required to repeat courses transferred as part of the field of study curriculum. Completion of the field of study curriculum shall not prevent a receiving institution from requiring additional lower-division courses that may be necessary for specific degree programs. Because of the complexity of requirements, student must plan very carefully and work with an advisor/counselor.

In order to be eligible to receive this A.S. degree, a student must:

  1. Complete a minimum of 60 credit hours including all the required courses listed;
  2. Earn a grade of "C" or better in English 1301 and the selected college-level mathematics course;
  3. Receive a GPA (2) of at least 2.00 ("C");
  4. Meet all Texas Success Initiative (TSI) standards and course prerequisites; and
  5. Complete at least 25% of the credit hours required for graduation through instruction by Dallas College.

Students who plan to transfer must work closely with an advisor/counselor.

This degree completes all Core Curriculum course requirements.
