Traditional BSN Undergraduate Program
All applicants will be reviewed in an individual and holistic manner. No single factor will determine a student's admission. Although academic criteria (cumulative GPA, grades earned in science courses, and failed/repeated courses) is an important factor in admission consideration, additional
non-academic information is also important. Completion of the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) examination will be required for admission beginning with the 2012-2013 application period.

Applications not meeting the minimum admission requirements will not be reviewed.
All applicants who receive offers of admission will be required to consent to a criminal background check. A history of criminal conduct or convictions may result in withdrawal of the admission offer. See "Criminal Background Checks" section of the School of Nursing Student Handbook for the School policy.
In addition, the Board of Nurse Examiners has identified certain circumstances that may render a potential candidate ineligible for licensure as a registered nurse in the State of Texas. See "Eligibility to Take NCLEX-RN Examination" section of the School of Nursing Catalog or access the BNE website: www.bon.state.tx.us for declaratory order information.
