Admission Process

BSN Program Information:

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program is designed for both first-time freshman and transfer students who want to earn a bachelors degree in Nursing.

One hundred sixty students are selected for the BSN program annually, eighty students for the fall semester that starts in September, and eighty students are selected for the spring semester that starts in January.

Selection criteria includes the cumulative GPA, science GPA , RN Pre-Admission Exam (PAX) score, letters of recommendation, experience and completion of the prerequisite courses. A minimum overall 2.70 college/university GPA is required on a 4-point scale. All prerequisites must be completed with a grade of "C" or better. CBU students with a minimum of one full-time semester completed prior to the application period are considered for admission prior to considering students enrolled in their first semester at CBU or transfer students.

We have more applicants for the BSN program than we have spaces available and we are very selective. We consider students with completed units from CBU prior to enrolled CBU students and then we will consider transfer students. 

LVN’s licensed in the State of California may be accepted into the program based on transfer of credit on a space available basis. A 30-unit LVN option is available on a space and course available basis. (Currently this option is NOT available.)
