Three Campuses. One Choice. One Application.

The BSN program is available on three campuses:  Morgantown, Beckley, and Potomac State and we've made it easy to apply to the campus of your choice.  Simply submit one application per term for the BSN program and your one campus preference. (Submitting multiple applications for the same term to different campuses may cause a processing delay in your application.)


Applicants are notified of admissions decisions via email in April for those starting in the fall semester, and July for those who start in the spring semester.

In programs with limited capacity and competitive admissions, the most qualified students are selected among those that meet the minimum requirements. Students who want to appeal the Undergraduate or Graduate Admissions Committee decision as unfair, arbitrary, or capricious may contact the Director of Admissions and Enrollment for the School of Nursing. The request will be forwarded to the committee for consideration, and the student will receive detailed information regarding the formal appeal process.
