Freshman students interested in the nursing program must first be accepted to the university. Once a continuing nursing student has completed all the requirements for the nursing major and has no more than 12 hours of TCU core requirements remaining, the continuing nursing student is eligible to begin nursing courses. All nursing majors must maintain a TCU cumulative GPA of at least 2.5. Students who come to TCU as freshman DO NOT use NursingCAS
Transfer and Accelerated students must submit an application through NursingCAS (www.nursingCAS.org). You ONLY apply to NursingCAS. You do NOT need to apply directly to TCU unless you are planning to finish prerequisite coursework at TCU prior to applying to a clinical program. Currently, we are using NursingCAS Version 2.0.
You may take the exam there at TCU or at another testing site. If the exam is not taken at TCU and is at another testing site, your scores must be sent from that facility.
