Revised: July 2019

In cases where Anatomy and Physiology are offered in a combined sequence course, both courses are required in order for credit to be awarded. For these courses Ohio State will award credit for EEOB 2510 (anatomy) and EEOB 2520 (physiology).

All science courses taken require a lab component.

Nursing requires an overall GPA of 2.75, and prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of Spring semester prior to enrollment.

Nursing requires a grade of C or better for prerequisite courses, if your university does not have a +/- grading scale you need to receive a grade of B or better.

This evaluation is valid for the current application cycle only. Evaluated courses and the transferability of these courses can change, at any time, due to course content and re-evaluation. After this date, it may be necessary to contact the Admissions Office for course or program changes. If you have any questions, please contact:
