5. SON Application Information
SON Application Evaluation Criteria:
Science/Math Prerequisite GPA = 50%

Non Science/Math Prerequisite GPA = 25%

TEAS Score = 25%
Science/Math Prerequisite GPA is comprised of grades from the following courses:

CHM 101
BIO 201
BIO 240
BIO 241
BIO 246
Choice of one: STT 210/215/QMM 280/PSY 225

Choice of one: SOC 105/ECN 125/ECN 221
How SON GPA is Calculated:
GPA for Science/Math Prerequisites and Other Prerequisites will be calculated based on all
completed, credit-bearing courses.

Where courses have multiple options, the highest grade will be used for calculations.

Scores and grades
will not
be evaluated if they were received in AP courses, CLEP courses, audited courses, or courses repeated at another institution which have previously been taken at UNCW.

Students who receive AP credit for prerequisite courses must complete at least one course in each category (Science/Math Prerequisites and Designated Prerequisites) for a grade in order to be evaluated for admission potential.
Application Deadlines:
December 15 for fall admission

July 1 for spring admission
Application Location:
The SON application will be available online, via mySeaport, about six weeks prior to the application due date.
Due to the competitive nature of the SON application process, it is important to have a "Plan B" in mind, in case you are not accepted into the SON.
Some examples of "Plan B" options are:

-ADN program at community college, then RN to BS program at UNCW

-Apply to other BSN programs at other universities

-Change major to other interests, such as Clinical Research, Psychology, Community Health Education, Social Work or other medical fields
