Online ABSN Prerequisite Courses and the PREP Program
Before you can get started in the accelerated nursing program, you must first meet our prerequisite course requirements, which involve the completion of 6 classes in the areas of general education and natural science. The prerequisite requirement is in addition to our general Utica ABSN admission requirements, which include holding a non-nursing bachelor’s degree with a 2.8 minimum cumulative GPA and a 3.0 GPA in the sciences. Our Prerequisite Priority Program (PREP) makes it convenient for you to do so by offering these courses 100% online, even those with labs.
Another big advantage of taking your ABSN prerequisite courses through PREP is that you automatically become a Utica College nursing student with a reserved spot in the ABSN program for your target start date. However, this early admission is contingent upon you meeting all the specified requirements for our Utica ABSN and its accompanying prerequisite courses.
Other PREP benefits include:
- Seamless transfer of prerequisite course credits.
- Financial aid eligibility when enrolled in at least two courses.
- One retake of any two ABSN prerequisite courses.
