Upper Division Courses

Admission to the College and successful completion of prerequisite course work does not guarantee admission to the upper division Nursing major. Admission to the Nursing major as a junior student is a separate process that occurs in the spring/summer of the sophomore year and is based on the student's ability to compete academically with other applicants. The number of students admitted to the Nursing major in any given year is limited to those who can be accommodated, given available resources and within the regulations set forth by the State Board of Nursing for SC.
