Admission Process

The process to be admitted into the School of Nursing is a two-step process:

Step 1

Admission to the College

The admission policy for the School of Nursing requires that students must first be admitted to the College.  Students must submit a transfer application to the college Admissions Office, declaring nursing as a major. Official transcripts (sealed) must be sent to the Admissions Office for review by a transfer counselor.  Once the complete review of the admissions materials has taken place, a letter will be sent to the applicant advising them of the decision for admission.  Students will be advised of the number of credits transferred to the college and will also be informed of the completion of math and writing requirements.  It is important to note that, if accepted, the student must submit the required acceptance fee before admission to the College can become official.

Step 2

Admission to the School of Nursing

Once the student has been admitted to the college, she/he can apply for admission to the program providing the following additional requirements are met:
  1. GPA of 2.5
  2. Enrollment in or completion of Nursing 207 with a grade of C or better.
  3. Completion of math and writing requirements.
