  • All upper level nursing courses must be taken at Penn State. You will earn 33 credits for completion of your associate degree and earning your RN license. You will receive a complete check sheet identifying these courses when you meet with an advisor prior to applying for admission. (Note: Students need 36 PSU credits to graduate from PSU.)
  • First and second year HACC students with open elective slots should follow the list above closely (for example if you have a free elective, you may want to choose an additional art course that would be a direct transfer to Penn State). Always consult with your HACC advisor prior to selecting courses based on Penn State’s list of requirements.
  • Second year HACC students should call and schedule an appointment with a Penn State advisor in their 3rd semester (if they are day students) or in their 6th semester (if they are evening students) to review transcripts and begin the admissions process. Day, evening, weekend, full and part-time options are available. Some web courses are also available.
