Individual Admissions Policy

Applicants who do not meet the admission criteria may still be considered for admission under the individual admission policy. To be considered, the applicant must demonstrate the ability to be successful in a rigorous academic curriculum through a recent strong academic performance in relevant course work.

Applicants who wish to be considered under this policy must submit, along with the nursing application, supporting materials making a specific, personalized case of why the applicant deserves acceptance into a rigorous academic program.

Submitted materials should include a written request for consideration; two letters of recommendation from appropriate sources such as professors or academic advisors; and a personal statement with supporting materials explaining why the applicant deserves special consideration and why his or her records do not meet the stated criteria. The submitted materials should contain very specific and compelling information to warrant the special consideration. Further information is provided in the nursing application.
