I am new here and wondering if anyone can explain to me the procedure for admissions at USF. I am currently taking the rest of the gen ed courses at COD and will be done in time to start in the fall. Now, here is where I am confused. I spoke to someone at USF who told me that as long as I had over a 2.0(which is just general university requirments for a transfer) that I would be admitted to the school. Next, I would need to take the "pre-nursing" courses in the Fall of 08 and then if my GPA is over a 2.75, I would be admitted to clinicals.
My questions are, if I am admitted to the university( I have over a 2.0 and have already applied) does that mean I will be admitted to the "pre-nursing" courses? The paperwork they sent me says that you need over a 2.75 in the gen eds to be admitted for the pre-nursing but their website states that you just need a 2.75 to be admitted for clinicals. Also, if I have to apply now, without my gen eds being complete, what are they basing their decision on? I won't be done with the rest of the courses until August(which is the deadline) but I am applying now. I am confused about what exactly I need to be admitted as a prenursing major.
I have a meeting with the nursing director this week but was wondering if any students here could explain this to me!
