To apply to the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (RN to BSN) program, you must first submit the online application to Auburn University.

To be considered for admission to the online RN to BSN program, you must:

    • Use the course calculator either by state and institution or by course name to see how the courses you've taken match up with those currently required by Auburn.
    • You must have achieved a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) in all prerequisite courses.
  2. Apply to Auburn University.

    • Applications are reviewed within 3 to 5 business days.

  3. Submit your official transcript(s) as part of your online application, showing the completion of an accredited associate degree in nursing or a diploma program.

    • Official transcripts must be reviewed by Auburn before you can submit an application to the RN to BSN program.
