BSN Direct Admit for Freshmen

The BSN Direct Admit for Freshmen pathway provides a unique opportunity for students coming directly out of high school, allowing admission to the College of Nursing and opportunities to get involved and build relationships from their first day on campus. Admitted students complete their prerequisites as nursing students and have access to additional College of Nursing resources, including academic advisors; organized study groups; and tutoring, workshops, and additional activities. Students are not required to reapply following completion of their freshmen year. This pathway is designed for students to complete their coursework within four years. Students are admitted once a year for the fall semester.
