Graduate Admission

Admission Requirements

Applicants to Nebraska Wesleyan’s graduate programs must fulfill the following general admission requirements:

  • Earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution, with a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher
  • Meet all additional specific program admission requirements (refer to the program for these requirements)
  • International students should contact the University College Office for additional admission requirements for applicants who are not U.S. Citizens.

Applicants not meeting the specified admissions requirements may be offered conditional admission. Conditional admission signifies the student is on Academic Probation and has one semester to meet the criteria to be in good standing [see Academic Standing and Satisfactory Progress].

Delayed Admission

A person who has accepted the admissions offer into a master's degree program yet has not begun classes, who now wishes to delay or decline the admissions offer, must declare these intentions in writing. The request will provide the person an inactive status for one academic year. If within the year the person wants to reactivate his or her acceptance in the program, a new background check (if applicable) will be needed, but a new applicaton is not required. After the one year, the admission to the program is void and the person must re-apply unless he or she has applied for and been granted an extension of their inactive status. When re-applying, all application policies and procedures in place at the time will be required.

Transfer Credit

Graduate-level credits from regionally-accredited institutions, with grades of “B-“ or better, are transferable, as deemed appropriate by the program and Registrar’s Office.

Students in the MSN program are limited to a maximum of nine transfer nursing credits. Students in the MSN/MBA program are limited to a maximum of nine transfer nursing credits and a maximum of three transfer business credits.

Enrollment of Visiting (non-degree seeking) Students

Individuals interested in earning graduate credit may enroll in a graduate-level course(s) as a visiting/non-degree seeking student, as long as the person meets any course prerequisite(s) and there is space available.
