Qualified High School graduates who are admitted to CSUSB for the Fall quarter following their Spring high school graduation, may earn guaranteed admission to the BSN program that begins in the Fall quarter of their Sophomore year.
The (3) required criteria below are taken from the campus Honors Program requirements and are based on student's Spring final high school transcript:
- High School cumulative weighted GPA of 3.5 or higher, and;
- 1100 or higher on the SAT I (ONLY: Critical reading + Math score) OR 26 or higher on the ACT (Both must have been taken while still in high school), and;
- Top 10% of final High School Graduating Class rankings.
Qualified students who graduate High School in Spring 2018 and begin CSUSB in Fall 2018 must submit their final high school transcript with SAT/ACT scores during the Fall 2018 quarter, no later than December 1, 2018. If SAT/ACT scores are not listed on their transcript, students must order their official scores from the College Board, and submit them to the Nursing Department by Dec. 1, 2018.
Students must complete and pass (At least 70.0%) the ATI TEAS admission test and submit scores by the Fall application deadline of April 1, 2019.
Students granted Guaranteed Admission for Fall 2019 must successfully complete ("C" or better) the prerequisite requirements (AP credit counts) by the end of the Spring 2019 quarter. Updated transcripts must be submitted to the Nursing Department no later than July 1, 2019. Also, at the completion of the Spring quarter, both the BSN prerequisite and cumulative GPA must be at least 3.0.
BSN Guaranteed Admission qualification and minimum requirements of both GPA's (Cumulative and BSN pre-reqs) and minimum TEAS score, are subject to being increased for Fall 2019 BSN admission.
