Information regarding the application process and links to application forms will be available on this website later this semester. Please check regularly for updates.

Please note the following general information regarding the application requirements.

  • The combined GPA for the science prerequisites must be 2.5 or above. The minimum required GPA for English 1A is 2.0.

  • In addition to the prerequisites there will be a multi-criteria application form with a minimum points requirement. There will be a variety of means by which to accumulate points. A TEAS test is not required to apply for the program, however it is typically an item on the multi-criteria application form where points can be accrued. If an applicant is successful in gaining admission to the program and they have not yet completed a TEAS test, this must be completed with a passing grade prior to beginning the program. The points and passing grade associated with the TEAS test will be confirmed once the application forms are posted.
