Transfer and Current OHIO Students
Transfer students from other BSN programs are reviewed individually for admission to the BSN major. Requirements for external transfer applicants to be considered for the pre-BSN include:
- Overall minimum college grade point average of 2.75 on a 4-point scale
- Completed application and admission to Ohio University
- Successful completion of at least 30 credit hours at the undergraduate level. Students seeking transfer to pre-BSN major who do not have at least 30 credit hours at the undergraduate level will follow the same guidelines as incoming freshman.
- Transfer equivalent of CHEM 1205 and CHEM 1205L (lab), or CHEM 1210, or Math Placement Level 1 or higher
Requirements for Current OHIO Students Requesting to Change their major to Pre-BSN
For information about changing your major, please make an appointment with a School of Nursing academic advisor by contacting the School of Nursing office.
Individuals must apply and meet specific School of Nursing requirements to be considered for selective admission into the BSN program. A minimum college GPA of 2.75 and other criteria are required for consideration of admission to the BSN major.
Admission to the BSN is competitive, and success in the pre-BSN major does not guarantee admission to the BSN program. Potential applicants to the Southern campus are strongly encouraged to contact Anna Payne, nursing advising specialist.
