Notes:

¹  Students may choose to carry more than 14 hours per semester and not attend summer session. 

If Arts and Science course requirements are completed before beginning nursing courses, students may not be able to maintain full-time status with nursing courses only, due to the sequential nature of the nursing courses and the number of nursing credit hours required. Check with the Financial Aid office for requirements for financial aid awards.
