UG Bachelor of Health Services

Undergraduate Academic Requirements

Admission to the USF School of Nursing and Health Professions is selective and based on an overall appraisal of your preparedness for college-level study. Evidence of academic preparation and achievement, test scores, letters of recommendation, and the personal statement are given careful consideration. Visit the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for more information on applying to the University of San Francisco Bachelor of Health Services program.

First Year Students

Students are admitted to the USF School of Nursing and Health Professions as regular students or conditional admits. Both regular and conditional admit students are held to the same standards for progression within the Bachelor of Health Services (BHS) program.

First year applicants who have less than a “C” average in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Physiology, Algebra II, Advanced Math, or any Honors or AP science courses will not be admitted to the program.

Conditionally Admitted Students

Students with conditional admit status can register for four academic courses during their first semester. They must also complete College Success Courses I and II, which are provided by Academic Support Services.

If appropriate, conditionally admitted students may be placed on a 4.5- to 5-year curriculum plan. Students in this track will take one science course their first semester and one to two science courses the second semester. They will then begin their coursework in nursing while taking a fourth science course during their third semester. An assigned academic adviser will monitor this progress on a monthly basis. Conditionally admitted students will also receive individual evaluations by the Learning & Writing Center.

Transfer Bachelor of Health Services Students

Transfer students must have a minimum GPA of 2.0 (cumulative) to be considered for admission into the Bachelor of Health Services program.
