Nursing Program Grade Point Average (G.P.A.) Requirements

After acceptance into the nursing program, each student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for coursework in the nursing major to remain in the nursing program.

The following courses must have a grade of C+ (2.33) or better.

  • ZOOL 330: Human Anatomy and Physiology I
  • ZOOL 331: Human Anatomy and Physiology II
  • CHEM 101: General Chemistry I
  • CHEM 102: General Chemistry II
  • NUTR 109: Introduction to Nutrition
  • EDS 121: Introduction to Life Span Development
  • MICR 200: Introductory Microbiology
  • STAT 171: General Elementary Statistics

In addition, only one of these courses may be repeated if a grade of C+ (2.33) is not achieved. A student may repeat one course one time.

Admission will be denied to any student who receives a second grade of less than C+ (2.33) for any nursing support course. Students with less than a 3.0 GPA for coursework completed after admission to the nursing major will be dismissed from the nursing program.


A student who has been dismissed from the program may appeal to the School of Nursing Committee for Admission, Progression, and Retention for readmission to the program. If the committee grants readmission, the student will develop a plan for remediation and continued success with the nursing academic adviser subject to approval by the Committee for Admission, Progression, and Retention.
