Academic Standing and Dismissal

  1. Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher to remain in good standing in the RN to BSN Program at Northwest Nazarene University.  
  2. If a student drops below a cumulative GPA of 2.75, the student will receive a warning letter from the program director and be placed on academic probation for the duration of one semester.  Academic probation includes an academic plan for improvement created collaboratively and signed by the student and the program director.  
  3. The student must earn a minimum GPA of 2.75 for the semester of probation.  If the student fails to earn a minimum GPA of 2.75, if the cumulative GPA still falls below the required 2.75, or if the student fails to meet the requirements of the academic improvement plan, the student may be academically dismissed from the program.  Students are notified of academic dismissal by the program director in writing.
  4. Students must pass all content classes with a grade of C or better. Students who fail to pass content classes with a C or better must re-enroll and pass the class with a C or better in order for the class to contribute toward graduation requirements in the content area.
