Nursing Program Admission
Carroll University's Nursing Program admits qualified students regardless of race, color, creed, sex, age, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin or handicap that does not interfere with the performance of professional nursing as provided by law.
Transfer student applicants may apply to the nursing major after successfully completing the following criteria:
- Submission of an application for the Nursing Program, and if a transfer student, submission of a Carroll University application
- Submission of transcripts from an accredited secondary school and all post-secondary institutions attended. Applicants must be eligible to return in good standing (be free of academic or disciplinary probation) to all institutions previously attended as documented on the college report form
- Earn a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher in college coursework
- Earn a professional GPA of 2.75 or higher in college coursework, including successful completion of ANP130 and CHE101 (grade BC or higher)
- A minimum course grade of BC is required in all coursework used to calculate the professional GPA (ANP130, 140, 212, CHE101, 102, HSC300 and nursing electives)
- Submission of the Technical Standards for Admission to and Progression in the Nursing Program and the Background Information Disclosure Forms
- Written statement to include reason for seeking the BSN degree
- Admission and progression standards are subject to change based on regulatory, licensing and/or certification needs
Carroll University reviews applications for admission to the Nursing Program on a competitive, space-available basis each semester. While we do not have admission deadlines, applicants are encouraged to submit the required admission documents as early as possible for consideration. The admission process tends to be a competitive one, with the number of applicants exceeding the number of spaces available. Qualified applicants who are not offered admission are invited to reapply for the following term; however, there is no admission guarantee.
Program decisions are made by a selection committee. Applicants are notified through the Office of Admission and will be provided a cohort assignment with program plan. This plan identifies the required sequencing of classes. Carroll guarantees placement in the upper division nursing classes and clinical experiences provided the student complies with the academic progression standards (maintain a 2.75 GPA each term and grade of BC or better are required in all nursing, chemistry, biology and health science courses) and polices for health science programs.
Transfer students interested in applying to the Nursing Program are encouraged to contact the Admission Office at 262.524.7220 and ask to speak with a nursing admission counselor.
