Why do I have to pay an application fee and submit official transcripts to OHSU? Can’t you just get my information from my community college application?
OHSU requires that OCNE CC students submit their online transition paperwork, which is a declaration of interest to transition to OHSU. This paperwork lets OHSU know who you are and allows us to plan for your transition year. The application fee is a processing fee that is used to manage your paperwork by the SoN and Registrar’s Office. It is non-refundable. OHSU also requires that we receive transcripts from all college institutions attended where college level coursework was taken; this is OHSU policy. Federal regulations (FERPA) prohibit your community college from sharing any academic information about you with OHSU, so this is why we require that students submit these updated transcripts at the time of transition paperwork submission.
I must have missed a step when I filled out the online paperwork. I don’t have the Non-Nursing Coursework Plan or Enrollment Agreement Form I’m supposed to turn in with my packet. Where can I find those forms?
The Non-Nursing Coursework Plan
The Enrollment Agreement Form
Another useful resource is the course equivalency guide page which you can use to see what courses from the local public institutions meet our non-nursing requirements.
