Students who have studied pharmacy, occupational therapy, or physical therapy in other fully accredited schools may be admitted with advanced standing. To qualify for a Creighton degree, transfer students must, at a minimum, complete the last two years of their program at Creighton. Individualized programs of study are constructed for advanced standing students by the Assistant/Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

In addition to submitting all required parts of the application for admission, applicants with advanced standing must present a letter of honorable dismissal from the dean of the school they have previously attended, together with his/her statement that they are eligible to return to that school, and his/her designation of the class to which it is permissible for them to return. At the time of graduation, transfer students must have completed equivalent course content and demonstrate the professional competence required by the appropriate Creighton University program.
