Eligibility Requirements

  Applications to the 2023 cohort are due April 1, 2023. 

Minimum GPA

Applicants must have progressed to the final semester of undergraduate study in nursing and achieved a minimum nursing GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale. Minimum GPAs are strictly enforced in the application review; no rounding and no exceptions. 


Applicants must be enrolled in the final semester of a nursing BS/BSN program (traditional, accelerated or RN to BS/BSN).


Applicants must have completed at least 100 credit hours of undergraduate study prior to application to the program.

Students must work full time as a nurse starting in their fall semester after graduation.

Please Note

Students who graduate from their baccalaureate nursing program in December can still apply for Early Assurance, but they will have to apply for the following fall semester, as we do not accept Early Assurance students in the spring.
