Admission Requirements

All applicants will be reviewed in an individual and holistic manner.  No single factor will determine a student's admission.  Academic criteria (cumulative GPA, grades earned in science courses, and failed/repeated courses) are important factors in admissions consideration.  Below are the academic admissions considerations for the R.N. to B.S.N. track:

Academic Admission Considerations
  • A cumulative GPA of 2.5 that is calculated from both prerequisite and nursing coursework. Course work must be earned from a regionally accredited institution.
  • Completion of ALL prerequisite coursework with a grade of “C” or better prior to the first day of enrollment.

Applications not meeting the minimum admission requirements will not be reviewed.

All applicants who receive offers of admission will be required to consent to a criminal background check. A history of criminal conduct or convictions may result in withdrawal of the admission offer. See "Criminal Background Checks" section of the School of Nursing Student Handbook for the School policy.
