Regular Admission Process
This route allows students to apply for admission into the Traditional BSN at the University of the Incarnate Word. Application process and specific deadlines can be found at How to Apply.
(Students who score at the Proficient Level or higher will be considered for admission.)
Fulfillment of these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. The applicant's entire academic record is considered, and an interview may be required. Completion of prerequisite courses, health requirements and a background check is also required.
At the time of program application, the applicant must have completed or be currently enrolled in:
Note for Alamo Colleges Students: The Alamo College equivalent of the required chemistry class is 1407, which includes the lab and lecture. However, 1407 has a prerequisite of 1405 so students transferring from the Alamo Colleges will be required to take 1405 and 1407 to satisfy the Biological or Organic chemistry requirement. (Some of the Alamo colleges may offer the lab and lecture separately, which is acceptable so long as both are taken. 1305+1105=1405, and 1307+1107=1407). Click here to see articulation.
Criminal Background Check
Applicants will be directed to complete a background check by the nursing program.
Upon admittance into the program, students must submit a BSN tuition deposit. The $250 deposit is required within the timeframe designated by the acceptance letter to hold and confirm the spot in the entering class. The full fee is non-refundable if a student later decides not to attend UIW. Two weeks after the first day of class, $250 will be reimbursed to the student's account.
Transfer students will also need to pay the $100 university confirmation fee upon admittance into the BSN program.
