How to Apply to the School of Nursing

At the time of application, students must be enrolled in or have completed all prerequisite course requirements. (If there is an intervening summer session, as is the case with spring applicants for the fall semester, courses can be completed in the summer). All prerequisite courses must be completed prior to the beginning of the Junior 1 first semester in the Professional Sequence.

  3. SEPARATE and OFFICIAL transcripts from each college/university you have attended other than UT-Austin (the School of Nursing does not require UT-Austin transcripts; individuals with prerequisite grade point averages exceeding the minimum 2.75 will receive more favorable consideration)
