  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale in all college course work
  • Hold a current and unrestricted license as a registered nurse in Oklahoma or designated state of residence in the U.S. (list license number on RN to BSN program application)

Acceptance into the program without full completion of application materials and prerequisites will be provisional. Students who fail to meet the provisional acceptance terms will forfeit their seat in the program and will need to reapply for consideration for subsequent terms.

OSU RN to BSN Applicant Checklist

Nursing students from OSU-OKC and OSU-IT will be granted provisional acceptance to the program and, upon meeting the eligibility requirements, will attain full acceptance. Priority will be given to any eligible RN who has graduated from either OSU-OKC or OSU-IT.

  1. Do not pay the application fee until you receive notice of your admission to the RN to BSN program. Your Application for Undergraduate Admission will first be reviewed for admission to Oklahoma State University. If admissible, you will be admitted to the Bachelor of University Studies (BUS) online degree program until your application is further reviewed and evaluated for admission into the RN to BSN program.  Once you are admitted to the RN to BSN program, a link will be provided on your status portal to pay the $40 application fee.  If provisionally admitted to the RN to BSN program, you may complete curricular prerequisites for the program online as a BUS student.

  2. Applications remain open for both Summer and Fall 2020.
