Nursing Students (pre-licensure)

Apply now – the priority deadline is January 30 (first-time applicants only).

Since admission to the nursing program is competitive, meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. If you would like to major in nursing, you will need to meet the following criteria:

  • Have evidence of legal authorization to work for any employer in the United States. Students who are unable to provide evidence of documented legal immigration status or citizenship will not be able to complete the required clinical experiences, which will impact their ability to meet course outcomes. In addition, they may be unable to obtain an R.N. license and secure employment in a health care setting.
  • High school transcript with a GPA of 3.0 or higher with courses to include three units of mathematics (one of which is algebra) and two units of science, with related laboratory or the equivalent.
  • Acceptable SAT/ACT scores.
  • Two letters of recommendation. Letters should be from teachers, counselors, employers, coaches, etc.
  • Essay on why you would like to pursue a career in nursing

Freshman nursing students may only start in the fall term. Transfer students must submit a transcript from previous college(s) documenting successful completion of at least 24 credits at an accredited institution. College GPA must be generally in the area of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale, with a minimum of a C+ in any required science course if applicable. Please see the full admission requirements for transfer students above.

Music and Music Therapy Students

Music and music therapy students must arrange for an audition.
