General Institutional Information
Trocaire College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, 3624 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104. (267-284-5000) The Middle States Commission on Higher Education is an institutional accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.
Transfer of Credit Policy: At the time of admission to the college, the Registrar evaluates the transfer credits as indicated on official transcripts from other institutions of higher education. A minimum grade of “C” is required to transfer. All academic programs that include course work in Anatomy & Physiology and/or Microbiology will require that all courses be successfully pursued at Trocaire College. An exception to this policy is for the student who has successfully complete Anatomy & Physiology and/or Microbiology at other institutions prior to enrollment at Trocaire College and has been approved for transfer credit by the Registrar. Current and transfer students must repeat science course work if the age of the credits are over five years. The Nursing and Practical Nursing programs also require students to repeat General and Developmental Psychology courses if credits are over 10 years old. Individual programs may have age requirements for other course work. Contact the Registrar’s Office for more information.

Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations: A federal or state drug conviction can disqualify a student for Federal Student Aid (FSA) funds. The student self-certifies in applying for aid that he/she is eligible. A conviction for any offense involving sale or possession of illegal drugs that occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving Title IV aid will result in loss of eligibility for any Title IV, HEA grant, loan or work-study assistance. A student regains eligibility the day after the period of ineligibility ends or when he successfully completes a qualified drug rehabilitation program. HEA Section 484(r), 34 CFR 668.40
