Students with Junior status (61-90 completed credits) from the University of Minnesota Duluth are able to apply for early decision admission to the Master of Nursing program at the School of Nursing on the Twin Cities campus.

Students must fulfill the following criteria to be eligible for the early decision option:

  2. Completed 5 of 9 prerequisite courses for the Master of Nursing program by the end of the fall semester, junior year 
  3. Minimum prerequisite GPA of 3.7
  4. GRE scores at the 50th percentile or higher

The application for ‘early decision for admission” opens on November 15th and closes on January 15th. Students selected will be required to maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 and a prerequisite GPA of 3.7.

Students must have completed a baccalaureate degree in a non-nursing field at UMD by June prior to fall enrollment in the UMN program. All nine prerequisites for the program must be completed prior to the accepted cohort start date.

Deferments will not be granted. If not accepted for early decision, qualified students remain eligible to apply for competitive admission during the final year of their undergraduate program or thereafter.
