Graduate Admissions

If, by the end of the semester, you’d like to continue your studies, we encourage you to apply to one of our graduate nursing programs.

Although acceptance to our non-degree study does not guarantee your admission into a graduate program, we will calculate your non-degree grades into your GPA and consider them when we review your graduate admission requirements. Grades lower than a B cannot be transferred to any of our graduate programs.
