We make our admission process as straightforward and personalized as possible. If you have any questions or need guidance, our counselors and advisers in the School of Nursing are available to assist you at every stage of your application process.

Admission Requirements

Your GPA alone doesn’t tell the full story of your academic strengths and talents. That’s why we look at many factors when considering each application for admission, especially as those factors relate to the specific program you’re applying to. We look at subject-specific courses you’ve taken and AP credits you’ve earned, as well as awards and other achievements.

  • At least one letter of recommendation from a teacher, guidance counselor, or someone who can reflect on your dedication and work ethic
  • 4 years of English
  • 4 years of mathematics
