Additional Notes


  •  BSN GPA requirements: 3.0 cumulative GPA required for admission*, 2.5 cumulative and major GPA required for retention, and 2.5 cumulative and 2.5 major GPA required for graduation.
    •  *Note that admission is competitive and requires an application process. Declaration of major happens after a student has been provisionally accepted into the BSN program. Please see http://nursing.appstate.edu for more information.
    •  *Students must earn a minimum grade of “B-” (2.7) in CHE 1101, CHE 1102, CHE 1110, CHE 1120, E S 2040, E S 2050, and BIO 2200. These courses are essential building blocks for the BSN curriculum.
  •  BSN grade requirements: All BSN majors must earn a minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in each required course on the major program of study. Students may be allowed to repeat one nursing course one time if they earn a grade below “C” (2.0). Failure to achieve a grade of at least a “C” (2.0) in a nursing (NUR) course results in dismissal from the nursing program.
  •  18 s.h. in major and 9 s.h. in minor must be at ASU.
  •  50 s.h. must be earned from a Senior Institution and 25% of the degree hours must be in residency at ASU.
  •  An overall GPA of 2.50 is required in Nursing courses at the end of the junior year and every semester thereafter.
  •  As stated in the catalog, the final responsibility for meeting graduation requirements remains with the student.
