Admission Requirements

First-year bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) program applicants must meet the general entrance requirements of the University as stated in the Admissions section of the University Bulletin and on the Office of Admissions website.

All entering first-year BSN students must complete a high school or college level general chemistry course prior to beginning the BSN program. 

The University of Portland recommends applying by our Early Action deadline of December 1. You may also apply by our Regular Decision deadline of February 1. After these dates, we will accept applications on a space available basis.

Please note: University of Portland non-nursing majors who wish to transfer into the nursing program must apply as a transfer student and be considered for admission with external applicants. The application process for internal transfers is very competitive and there is no guarantee of acceptance into the transfer cohort.
