The session will be at 9 a.m. Saturday on the Charleston Campus. CSN officials will help former Brightwood students customize plans and offer support services.

“We welcome students from Brightwood,” CSN President Federico Zaragoza said in a statement. “CSN recognizes their challenges and we want to do everything we can to make their transition go as smoothly as possible.”

CSN has designated health program advisers to help students effectively transfer and complete their program of choice.

Because Brightwood College was not a regionally accredited institution, some credits may not transfer to CSN or other regionally accredited institutions. But some credits may transfer through the CSN Non-Traditional Education review process, and CSN is ready to evaluate transcripts.
