Applicants must complete an associate’s degree or a bachelors’ degree from a regionally accredited institution, or transfer with 90 quarter credits or 60 semester credits. Students who have completed at least 90 quarter credits or 60 semester credits, without a direct transferable associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree, must also complete a five-quarter or three-semester credit hands-on art class prior to enrolling in the nursing program.

For a list of direct transferable associate’s degrees, review the “Transfer Policy” which can be found here.
To qualify for direct transfer with junior standing and exemption from lower division University CORE requirements, applicants must be granted an approved Associate of Arts transfer degree or previous bachelor's degree. Courses taken during that program must also include the college’s equivalents of the nursing prerequisite courses.
NOTE: You may apply to the BSN program without an approved Associate of Arts transfer degree or previous bachelor's degree, but aren’t guaranteed that all necessary lower division University CORE coursework will be waived.
