Nursing Undergraduate Programs
There are two types of nursing undergraduate students: Pre-Major and Full-Major.
All students who apply to UAA and qualify for admission to the nursing programs are automatically admitted as pre-majors. Admission as a pre-major does not guarantee admission to the full major portion of the nursing programs as there is limited capacity in each program and location. Pre-major students are considered degree-seeking students and are eligible for federal financial aid. The following pages are primarily designed for students at this stage.
Once a student has successfully gone through the ranking process for their program and been offered a seat in a Nursing cohort they are considered a full-major student. Full major students are the only students eligible to take NURS and NS nursing courses. If you are already a full major student or interest in additional information about being in the program, visit the SON Current Student Portal.
