- Review the college catalog for required course prerequisites and include these in schedule planning, and
- Communicate with a faculty adviser.

Admission Requirements to a University or College Admission application deadlines vary. Students must meet the deadline for the university or college to which they plan to apply for admission to transfer. For admission to nursing as a major, it is critical to note that grade point average requirements vary and admission is competitive. Certain schools may have additional “university-specific” requirements that are not prerequisites to admission to the Nursing major but will have to be completed prior to graduation and/or commencement of nursing courses. Certain schools may have additional “university-specific” requirements for admission to the institution that are not prerequisites specifically identified in the requirements for the Associate in Pre-nursing degree.
Contact with advisers from individual schools for institutional requirements is highly recommended. Students completing this degree who have also met specific institutional grade point average requirements and/or any university-specific requirements will be regarded as having the minimum preparation for consideration for admission to a Bachelor of Science Nursing program to the colleges and universities listed in the program description.
