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. Applicants without an approved degree must have direct equivalency for the following:

  • UCOR 1100 Academic Writing Seminar
  • UCOR 1300 Creative Expression and Interpretation (i.e. hands on art course)

And have taken enough courses to have categorical substitution for (class doesn't have to have similar content, but must be in a similar category):

  • UCOR 1400 Inquiry Seminar in the Humanities
  • UCOR 1600 Inquiry Seminar in the Social Sciences
  • UCOR 3600 or UCOR 3800 Social Sciences or Natural Sciences and Global Challenges

A full evaluation of your credits will only be available at the time you are admitted to Seattle University. If you are concerned about course equivalency and your course is not listed in the equivalency guide please email for assistance.
