Students must achieve a minimum grade of 80 in each nursing course and each section of the course when a course has two distinct class/clinical components (NU 310, NU 340, NU 440). A nursing course may be repeated only once to obtain a passing grade. This option can be used only one time in the nursing program. Readmission into the nursing course after a withdrawal/failure is assessed on an individual basis. The Department of Nursing has additional policies and procedures which are binding for nursing majors. Included in these policies are standards for progression in the nursing major. They are found in the Nursing Department’s Student Handbook.

Foundation courses, nursing courses, prerequisite and corequisite courses may not be taken pass/fail.
