RN to BSN Undergraduate Program

Registered Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing

Admission Requirements

All applicants will be reviewed in an individual and holistic manner. No single factor will determine a student's admission.

Although academic criteria (cumulative GPA, grades earned in science courses, and failed/repeated courses) are important factors in admission consideration, additional non-academic information is also important.

Note: International students with F1 and F2 status are not eligible to apply to an online program.

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. No student will be allowed to matriculate without a cleared criminal background check.
