Transfer or Advanced Level Applicants

Applications from students with BScN transfer credits from other institutions will not be accepted and the application will not be processed. (Students who are current or previous students in the LU BScN program at SLC or one of the collaborative partner institutions can apply. They should contact their current program coordinator.)
