Admission to the Department of Nursing is based on grades through Fall 2021.  Since most admission letters are issued in May, spring grades are not utilized in calculating your admission GPA.  Please note, the admission GPA for nursing will include any grade of D or F previously attained at any college in a required course in the nursing curriculum of University of Holy Cross.  The repeat/delete policy of the University does not apply for admission purposes to the Department of Nursing.  After admission letters are issued by mid-May and, if space is available, spring grades may be utilized to determine eligibility until all available spaces are filled.

Note for Transfer Students:  The Office of Admissions will instruct you to wait until the end of the spring semester to send an official transcript.  However, your application to the Department of Nursing cannot be completed without Fall 2021 grades.  Please request ALL transcripts at this time.  In addition, the Office of Admissions will require additional official transcripts of spring and/or summer grades.
