No grade below a “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.

Applicants must have a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 in the last 59 hours and a Science GPA of 3.0 *. Completion of a TEAS exam (ATI) and submission of score. If you have been previously enrolled in nursing courses at another college or university resulting in a grade less than C, then you are ineligible to apply to the ABSN or TBSN tracks at Anderson University.

Degree Requirements (63 Cr. Hrs.)
