Graduation Requirements

  • Pass all nursing and cognate courses with a minimum GPA of “C” and maintain a 2.75 GPA.

A grade of 2.75 “C” or above must be achieved in every nursing course in order to progress in the nursing program.  Any grade below 75 will not be rounded up.  For specific information about the grading system, please refer to Policy 02:06:00 Uniform Grading.  Letter grades of “D” or “F” in any nursing or cognate courses will constitute a course failure and the student will be required to repeat the course to achieve a passing grade at his/her own expense.
