Admissions Application Requirements for Accelerated Undergraduate Programs

Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing & Weekend Bachelor of Science in Nursing

These programs are second-degree programs. To apply for either, you must hold a bachelor’s degree in another field. We will consider you for admission if you:

  • Earned a bachelor’s degree at a regionally-accredited college or university
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0
  • Submit a personal statement
  • Demonstrate evidence of successful completion of prerequisite course requirements with a “C+” or better in science courses; all prerequisite courses must be successfully completed prior to starting the programs; you do not need to have your prerequisites completed before you apply, but the majority should be completed, at least four science prerequisite courses, before an admissions decision can be made.
  • Have completed all science prerequisite courses, including Nutrition within the last seven years; Statistics and Developmental Psychology must be completed within the last 10 years, with a passing grade.

Once you are admitted to the program, you will need to:

  • Pass a criminal background and child abuse records check
