Are there any evening/weekend classes?
All nursing courses are offered during the day, while some clinical rotations may take place at night or on the weekends.
How can my student be a competitive applicant for the Traditional BSN program?
How can my student see an advisor?
How does my student apply to the nursing BSN program and when is the deadline to apply?
Students must first be admitted to UCF before they can apply to the College of Nursing.
Therefore, we recommend that students apply to UCF general admissions at least three months in advance of the nursing application deadline, which is February 1 – 15 annually for the Traditional BSN program.
As soon as students have a UCF ID, they may complete the College of Nursing application; however, they must be fully admitted to UCF for the term that they wish to start the BSN program BEFORE the nursing application deadline.
What are the prerequisites?
- ZOO 3733 Human Anatomy

What if my student is in progress for two prerequisites when he or she applies?
Applicants must have a minimum of 7 of the 8 prerequisites COMPLETED by the BSN annual application deadline of February 15. If this requirement is not met, the student’s application will be denied.
What is the difference between the Traditional and Concurrent programs?
In the Traditional BSN program, students are enrolled only at UCF and graduate with a BSN degree in five semesters. Learn more here to see if this program is for your student.
In the Concurrent ASN to BSN program, students are dually enrolled at a partner institution (Valencia College or Seminole State College) and graduate with an ASN degree at the end of the fifth semester while also earning more than half of their BSN credits from UCF. Students complete the remaining two semesters of the UCF BSN program online to graduate with a BSN degree.
What score does my student need to get on the TEAS?
Applicants must have a minimum score of 78 on the TEAS exam.
When can my student start and on what campuses?
The Traditional BSN program begins in the Fall semester (once a year) and is offered on three UCF campuses (Orlando, Daytona and Cocoa).
Students may fill out one application and be considered for all campuses.
Will the credits my student has earned transfer?
Students who have completed nursing prerequisites outside of the State of Florida or at a private institution must complete an Undergraduate Petition with the UCF College of Nursing.
For any General Education Program (GEP) or foreign language courses taken outside of the State of Florida or at a private institution, students must complete a Transfer Credit Request form with UCF Academic Services.
