• Students will be admitted to the BSN traditional track from three student groups: first time freshmen, current Lee students, and transfer students. Application to the nursing major will only be considered after the student has been accepted to the University. All nursing majors are admitted to the School of Nursing for the fall semester.

    For complete information on the admission and progression policies, refer to the Policies and Procedures for Admission, Transfer, and Progression.

    Nursing Admissions

    Freshmen Students

    Admission space may be limited and beginning freshmen students are highly encouraged to apply to the nursing major prior to the posted Priority Admission Deadline. All nursing majors are admitted to the School of Nursing for the fall semester. For students on the traditional freshman plan of study, prerequisite courses do not have to be completed prior to admission to the nursing major.

    Beginning freshmen nursing majors will be admitted into one of three admission statuses: Full Acceptance, Provisional Acceptance and Pending Acceptance. The status of admission is based on space, the competitiveness of the applicant pool, and the factors included below.

    Factors influencing freshmen admission status into the nursing major include high school and college courses completed; cumulative GPA (Students with previous college course work must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75.); ACT or SAT scores; Test of Essential Academic Skills-V (TEAS-V) entrance exam score; essay; and academic recommendations. TEAS-V test must include Reading, Math, Science, English and Language Usage. TEAS-V exemptions: ACT score of 25 and above, or SAT Reading/Math score of 1150 and above (writing score is not included).

    Current and Transfer Students

    All current and transfer students are accepted to the School of Nursing for the fall semester only. Current students must apply for admission during designated application periods, and may not change to the nursing major before acceptance into the School of Nursing.

    Admission space may be limited and students are highly encouraged to apply to the nursing major prior to the posted Priority Admission Deadline. Transfer students entering Lee University in the spring semester who wish to apply to the School of Nursing for the fall semester should apply by the Priority Admission Deadline.

    Factors influencing current and transfer student admission status into the nursing major include: college courses completed; cumulative GPA (minimum 2.75); ACT or SAT scores; essay; academic recommendations; and Test of Essential Academic Skills-V (TEAS-V) entrance exam score.
