Graduate coursework earning a C can only be applied toward bachelor’s degree requirements. Graduate coursework at a C or lower will need to be repeated and a B or better must be earned for graduate program credit to be awarded. Completion of graduate coursework does not imply acceptance into a graduate program, all other program admission requirements apply. Graduate coursework taken by undergraduate students must be utilized to meet program specific requirements for the undergraduate degrees associated with BSN degree.
