Southern State Community College

Transferable General Education Credits

Most students will have completed the majority of the pre-requisite requirements in their associate degree program. If not all pre-requisites are complete you may be admitted to begin the RN to BSN program immediately; however, successful completion of all pre-requisite courses is required to obtain the BSN degree. Completion of pre-requisites while enrolled in the RN to BSN program may prolong the time to degree. Not all pre-requisites are offered at the University of Cincinnati at all times in an online format. The pre-requisite courses can be completed at any regionally accredited institution and transferred to the University of Cincinnati to fulfill the requirement.

If you are a student at Southern State, the following courses can be taken to satisfy the required pre-requisite courses for the RN to BSN program:
