Academic Advising Center

Pre-Nursing

The Academic Advising Center provides academic advising for Pre-Nursing students who have completed 0-29 hours and intend to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Students who have completed 30 hours and above are advised at the School of Nursing.

Advising is required prior to registration each semester. Students are encouraged to see an advisor to have an official degree plan created. The degree plan will be used to plan completion of the 58 prerequisite hours needed to request approval to enroll in lower-division Nursing courses.

Evaluation Request for School of Nursing (SON) approval occurs in February and September of each year. Further information is available on the School of Nursing web page for Pre-Nursing students.
