The School of Nursing is committed to being responsive to the needs of transfer students. In the past few years, there has been a national and statewide increase in the number of students interested in nursing. Accordingly, the competition among students for acceptance into nursing programs, including St. Scholastica, has risen. The following information details the selection process for transfer students entering the nursing program.
The nursing major accepts 112 students into each class.
The following criteria are used to rank-order transfer students for selection into one of the 20 reserved seats of the nursing program. The criteria are listed in order of importance:
If completed at St. Scholastica, a grade of 'C' or higher is required. If transferred, a grade of 'B' or higher is required.
"What drew me to this program and kept me here was the school's willingness to consider students, and make sure the program was meeting our needs. The faculty and staff listen to us."
