Important notes

  • Courses and credits that can be used to determine the nursing application, science, and GenEd GPAs include Advanced College Project (ACP) dual-credit courses, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, International Baccalaureate (IB) credits, special departmental course/test credits, and transfer credits.
  • Up to two AP or special departmental credit courses totaling 6 credit hours may be used on the nursing application. One course may be used toward the science GPA and one may be used toward the GenEd GPA.
  • Undistributed credit may be used only to fulfill the Critical/Analytical/Science requirement or as elective credit.

Disclosure form

As part of the application process, you are required to complete the Student Disclosure of Criminal Conviction and Pending Criminal Charges Form to disclose any issues that would be documented on a national criminal background check. You will fill out the form online when you complete your BSN program application.

If you have pending legal charges or are currently in a pretrial diversion program, you are ineligible to apply for the BSN program until those are resolved. Certain types of offenses, such as theft, may disqualify you from applying for five years. If you have more than one offense (including alcohol citations), you may be ineligible to apply.

How to apply

Follow these steps to submit your application for the BSN program:

  1. Complete the online application. The application is available from January 15 through March 15 each year.
  2. Take the ATI TEAS exam. The exam must be be completed by the March 15 application deadline.
  3. Attend a mandatory application information session presented by School of Nursing advisors.

Applying to the BSN program on other IU campuses

You need to submit only one application to apply to the BSN program on both the Bloomington and IUPUI campuses. When you fill out your application, you will have the opportunity to indicate your preferred campus.

Regional campuses have their own admission criteria and application processes, so if you want to apply to the BSN program on a regional campus, you must submit a separate application to that campus.
