I attended college, but didn’t earn any credit.  Do I still need to have my transcript submitted?  Yes, we require final transcripts from all institutions previously attended.

I plan on take pre-nursing course before applying to the nursing program.  Do I still need to sign/ submit a nursing acknowledgement form?  The Nursing Program Acknowledgement Form is required at the time of general admission so that the student understands the academic requirements needed for entrance into the Nursing program.

I have a transcript at home.  Can I send that with my application?  An admission decision can only be made with official documents.  Transcripts are considered official when they are either mailed directly to Midway University from the issuing institution in a sealed envelope or sent electronically by a secured third party such at National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment.

How do I know what credits will transfer?   Midway University accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher with a grade of “C” or better.  At the time of admission, our Admissions Counselors will provide an unofficial evaluation of your transfer credit.  An official evaluation will be completed by the Registrar’s Office after acceptance.

I already have a college degree.  Why do I need to submit my high school transcript?  Some majors, such as Nursing, have separate accreditation standards that must met that include having official high school transcripts on file.
