Second Degree BSN Undergraduate Program
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) is an important factor in admission consideration, additional non-academic information is also important.
An unofficial transcript evaluation is highly recommended, though not required, prior to submitting your application. You may email or fax unofficial transcripts from all colleges attended to one of the Second Degree Contacts. Include your name, contact phone number and email address on all correspondence.

In compliance with TTUHSC policy, all applicants who have received offers of admission will be required to consent to a criminal background check before being allowed to matriculate. A history of criminal conduct or convictions may result in withdrawal of the admission offer. See the “Criminal Background Checks” section of the SON Student Handbook for the SON policy. The Health Sciences Center policy may be found at HSC OP 10.20. No student will be allowed to matriculate into the program without completing and receiving clearance from the Texas Board of Nursing with either a BON Blue Card or a Declaratory Order with No Stipulations. The cost for a criminal background check(s) is the responsibility of the student.
Note: International students with F1 and F2 status are not eligible to apply to an online program.

† Preference given if submitted at the time of application
An unofficial transcript evaluation is highly recommended prior to submitting your application. To receive an evaluation, potential students must submit the following items:
- Transcripts from ALL United States Colleges and Universities you have attended in your lifetime.
- Official transcripts received by the Evaluator will be copied, reviewed and submitted to the Office of the Registrar. If submitting an unofficial copy of a transcript, it must be a physical copy of the official transcript. All transcripts must be received by the Evaluator prior to review.
Transcripts may be submitted via mail, email or fax. For contact information, click here.
Contact information must include the following:
- Program of Interest (BSN, RN-BSN, 2nd Degree BSN)
- Phone Number
- Email Address
Any transcript which does not comply with the above instructions will not be reviewed. This includes a transcript which has been cut and pasted into an email.
Potential students who submit compliant transcripts will receive an evaluation form within 21 days.
Transcripts from schools outside the U.S. must be evaluated by a Foreign Credential Service. The School of Nursing requires course-by-course evaluation using U.S. letter grades and credit hours. A list of service providers may be found here.
