Academic Forgiveness Policy
Last 48 hours of completed coursework
Lakeview College of Nursing understands that students may have had difficult times in their lives resulting in sub-standard academic performance at previous institutions. Applicants in this situation can write a statement asking the Admission Committee to exclude this previous coursework from the cumulative GPA calculation. The cumulative GPA will then be figured using the last 48 credit hours of coursework, which must be a 2.5/4.0. Students requesting academic forgiveness will not qualify for an early admission decision.
Science Course Time Limit
There is a time limitation on the prerequisite science courses needed for the nursing program. Anatomy and Physiology I & II, Chemistry I & II, and Microbiology MUST be taken no more than 5 years prior to the start of the nursing program, unless the student is currently a licensed RN.
Please note the following consideration will be given to two-part courses (e.g. Anatomy & Physiology Part I and Anatomy & Physiology Part II as well as Chemistry I & Chemistry II), as long as one of the two-part courses is complete within the last 5 years, the credits for the other part of the course will be recognized as long as it meets other transfer guidelines.
If a student has prerequisite science courses that are not recognized due to time limitation he/she will need to either repeat the course or pass a college proficiency test. For more information regarding our proficiency options please contact our admissions office. There is a cost associated with proficiency exams.
