Admission of the (BSN/RN-BSN) Student-at-Large

The College may accept students with a status of Student-at-Large (SAL) who wish to enroll in courses non-pursuant to a degree.  Acceptance as an SAL does not guarantee admission into the degree program.  If an SAL later wishes to pursue degree-seeking status in Saint Anthony College of Nursing, the student must apply according to the BSN or RN-BSN degree program admission process.

SAL students are subject to Colege policies and regulations.  Tuition and fees for SAL and degree-seeking students are the same.  Neither Tile IV Financial Aid nor private-donor College scholarships are awarded to SAL students.

Students who wish to apply and  enroll as a SAL must:

  • Submit a completed application accompanied by a $75 tuition deposit.
  • Submit official transcripts, to Saint Anthony College of Nursing. All transcripts must be sent directly from all former colleges/universities attended.  Priority registration is given to degree seeking students.
  • Must meet college admission requirements:
    • Must have a 2.5 or higher cumulative GPA;
    • Must have a 2.7 nursing science GPA based on the grades earned in Anatomy & Physiology, College Chemistry, and/or Microbiology.  Must have completed at least ONE of the aforementioned nursing science classes.
    • Must sign up for and complete the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) pre-admission test prior to being eligible to sign up for a course.
