*These courses are taken with students in the Traditional BSN program
Students must maintain an overall GPA of 2.0 in order to progress and graduate with a BSN degree. If a student receives a grade of “D” or “F” in a course, the student will not be allowed to continue in the Accelerated BSN program.
The student may be allowed to convert to the Traditional BSN program as space is available; however, this may prolong the course of study. If, after converting to the Traditional BSN program, the student receives another “D” or “F” in any course, the student will be dismissed from the program.
Course withdrawals are not allowed in the Accelerated BSN program.
If a student withdraws from a course, the student will not be allowed to continue in the Accelerated BSN program but may be allowed to convert to the Traditional BSN program. Once the student converts to the Traditional BSN program, only one additional course withdrawal is allowed.
