All materials must be submitted, for review, by the deadline for application to the University for consideration to begin coursework.
During the first semester of enrollment of regular admission the student must do the following:
An applicant who meets all requirements for admission to the master's degree program except the cumulative grade point average of 2.7 on all undergraduate work attempted or a formula score of 1200 may seek provisional admission status. For acceptance to provisional status the student must have a minimum of at least 1100 on the formula score, with a minimum of 2.5 cumulative GPA on the last 60 hours of undergraduate work attempted. To be removed from provisional status the student must make a “B” or better in each graduate-level course in the first nine (9) hours. If a "C," "D," or "F" grade is made on any course attempted during the 9 hours in provisional status, the student will be dismissed from the program and the Graduate School. A request to repeat a course will be taken under advisement and considered on a case-by-case basis.
An applicant not having a minimum of 2.5 cumulative GPA on upper division baccalaureate work will be requested to take additional undergraduate nursing courses as an unclassified student to enable the applicant to be considered for provisional admission.
Applicants not meeting the formula score for regular admission due to their GRE score may be allowed to register for graduate nursing courses in the non-degree classified status for one semester. Priority for registering for graduate nursing courses is provided to regular admission status students.
