Requirements for Undergraduate Admission (RN-BSN)



Applicants to the RN-BSN program must meet all requirements for undergraduate admission as outlined in the ADMISSIONS section of this catalog. International students must have a minimum score of 89 on the TOEFL. In order to be considered for admission a student must send the following credentials to the Office of Admissions:
  1. A completed application for undergraduate admission.
  2. An official transcript from EACH college or university attended, sent directly from each institution to UH-Victoria. (For timely and accurate processing, students should ensure that all official documents have been submitted prior to registration.)
  3. Applicants to the BSN program must have graduated from an accredited associate degree or diploma program. Applicants who have completed an international nursing diploma program that is not affiliated to a university may not satisfy the Associate Degree requirement for admission to the University of Houston-Victoria RN-BSN program due to the non-academic nature of this type of coursework. Please contact an International Student Advisor in the University of Houston-Victoria’s Office of Admissions.
  4. Applicants to the BSN program must provide evidence of an unencumbered, current RN Texas license.
  5. Applicants to the BSN program must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 and a GPA of 2.5 in natural and behavioral sciences is expected.

            http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/immunize/forms/6-103.pdf. Failure to adhere to the guideline is a violation to 
            the Texas Administrative Code Title 25 Part 1 Chapter 97 Subchapter B Rules 97.61-.97.72.

            deadline in order to be considered for admission. The SON will not receive original documents.

        d. In addition, all students will be responsible for original documents and maintaining compliance with the 
            UHV SON Clinical Requirements throughout the program. In the event that a student does not meet the 
             requirements at any time during the program, a course registration hold will be implemented until the 
             requirement is met.

        e. Students will receive directions regarding accessing the secure data collection agency process via the
