Please meet with a Snow College Academic Advisor to make sure all requirements for an ASN degree will be met.

All prerequisite and co-requisite courses must be completed with a minimum grade of “C” for the ASN degree. We follow Snow College’s grade requirement for the GE courses.

Co-requisite and suggested courses, completed with a minimum grade of “B-”, may be given points in the application process.

*PSY 1010 or HFST 1500 is required for the ASN degree. If the additional course is completed, you may receive points in the application process.

** Associate degrees require a quantitative literacy course, i.e. MATH 1030 or higher; however, students transferring to a BSN or higher nursing program may need MATH 1040.

***The LPN Nursing GPA will be determined from all nursing courses completed. A “B-” (2.7) grade will be used for any LPN courses that are not complete by the application deadline. Students with a grade lower than a B- must show at least part-time experience working as an LPN for a minimum of one year.
