Admission to BSU

Students must be admitted to Bemidji State University prior to applying for admission to the Nursing major. Apply to BSU Online.


Admitted BSU students are eligible to apply for Direct Admission to our program if they meet the following qualifications:

  1. High School cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher.
  2. Composite ACT score of 25 or higher.

It’s important to note that many students will still need to do their pre-requisite coursework at BSU or elsewhere prior to applying to the program; however, it may be possible for students to submit their application as a first-year student if they completed the application requirements as a PSEO student.
