Should I elect to take a letter grade or S/NCR?
The College of Nursing Advisors would advise undergraduate students to take the letter grade you earned. Letter grades are important for your future. As you apply into competitive programs, such as nursing, you will need a grade. When you apply to competitive nurse residency programs after graduating from your nursing program, grades matter to the employer. When you apply to graduate programs to get a masters or doctoral degree, grades on your transcript matter..
Make a good decision for your future. Study hard and make good grades so you do not have to retake courses. Your patients deserve the very best.

How do I determine if my private institution, out-of-state, or out-of-country credits will transfer to University of Houston?
If you received a degree, or have credits from a private, an out-of-state, or out-of-country institution you can apply directly to the University of Houston to determine if you have equivalent courses to the BSN degree or to determine if you need additional course work to satisfy UH core curriculum to satisfy BSN degree requirements per UH catalog requirements. Please refer to UH application deadline page to meet College of Nursing program Track application deadlines.
