High school chemistry is a prerequisite for admission to the nursing program. Students currently in high school should complete this course before graduation. Transfer students with no high school chemistry background should complete a high school level chemistry course at a community college.
*PLEASE NOTE: There are a limited number of spaces in the university's freshman class each year. It is advisable to apply early, as the university's freshman class fills on a first-come, first-served basis by accepted students who have made their tuition deposit.
An application for admission to the University may be obtained from the office of admission.
