Transfer/Advanced Standing credits

CCNM considers applications for transfer and advanced standing credits from applicants who have completed comparable courses at a CNME-accredited or candidate-for-accreditation institutions.

Transfer students must apply to CCNM through NDCAS and meet the same entrance requirements as other CCNM applicants. They also must provide an official letter of recommendation from a senior administrator at the transferring institution that indicates they are in good academic standing and have not been subject to any disciplinary actions. Applicants must apply for transfer/advanced standing on a course-by-course basis, providing detailed course outlines for each course. Before acceptance becomes official, the registrar must approve the transfer/advanced standing credits based on the following criteria:.  

  • Course(s) must be equivalent or better in the number of credit hours.
  • A passing grade of 65 per cent must have been achieved.
  • Each course must be substantively equivalent (minimum 70 per cent) in content and learning outcomes as compared to the CCNM course it replaces.

No more than 50 per cent of the ND program can be completed via transfer or advanced standing credits. All courses approved for transfer/advanced standing credits will show as “EQV” on the CCNM transcript and will not be calculated into a student’s GPA.

If you are an International Medical Graduate, you may qualify for bridge delivery of the ND program.
