Three years of previous work experience is a requirement for admission to the General Business, Marketing, and RN to BSN undergraduate online degree program. The insight and knowledge gained from your work experiences are a key component to your success in those specific programs.
Your résumé provides us a quick look at those experiences and the employer verification form is another vital piece of documentation. The purpose behind collecting this admission information is to help ensure your success in the program, should you be admitted.
If you have worked full-time in the past or part-time for a number of years, you can apply to the program. We will look at the employer verification form and your resume to determine your eligibility.
The program was not designed for students coming to college directly from high school; it is for adults with some work experience.
As a final note, the decision about your eligibility is ultimately based on a number of factors, not just your work experience. If you do not have the full-time work experience, you may submit an appeal to request admission to the program.
