Prerequisite courses must be from a regionally accredited college or university with a minimum grade of "C". All prerequisite courses must be completed and an official transcript submitted prior to the start of nursing school. To qualify to apply, you must have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher in the required prerequisite courses. The most recent prerequisite grade will be used to calculate the prerequisite GPA.

Dual Credit, AP, or CLEP is accepted for the applicable courses if the grade meets school requirements. Please make sure that all Dual Credit, AP or CLEP credit is provided on the official transcript.
