BSN Program Admission Requirements: Freshmen Students


Freshman Admission Requirements

Because our program is a direct admit program, and students start taking their nursing courses their first year in the program, they need to only complete one application for admission.


In order to be considered for the nursing program you must fill out an Aquinas College Application, either a hard copy or online. A hard copy can be obtained from the Aquinas College Admissions Office, or one can be mailed to you. After you submit your application for admission you must send your official high school transcripts (through junior year) and any standardized test scores available. We will accept ACT and/or SAT scores.

  • Minimum Cumulative GPA of 2.5 overall
  • Minimum¬† Cumulative GPA of 2.5 within all math and science courses
  • Minimum Composite Score of 21 on ACT
Admission to the nursing program does not guarantee you a spot in the program. In order to secure a spot, (once you are admitted) you must submit your enrollment deposit. Incoming freshmen will be given spots on a first come, first serve basis.
