Application/Admission Criteria

Admission to the nursing program is competitive.  Students who only meet minimum requirements may not be competitive.  Multiple selection criteria are used to determine admission to the nursing program.  These include but are not limited to:

  • Declare nursing as a major prior to nursing application submission
  • Overall GPA of 3.0 or above (includes non-GVSU college credits) and complete all pre-requisite courses with a "C" (not C-) or higher
  • A completed nursing application by the deadline
  • Competitive grades in the pre-requisite courses required for admission
  • An interview
  • Other areas as detailed on the nursing application
  • Starting Fall 2012:  Adhere to the Kirkhof College of Nursing repeat policy:  Students may repeat three pre-requisite courses and two of those courses can be BMS, CHM, or BIO

Please note: A grade of "C" (2.0) is considered a failure in all required nursing courses (designated by NUR).  Students who ail more than one nursing course will not be allowed to remain in the program.  Withdrawal from a course in failing status will be considered a course failure regardless of when the withdrawal occurs.
