Eligibility for Reentry - LVN

Effective January 27, 2015, the eligibility for reentry is as follows:

A student who has been academically dismissed from West Coast University may apply for reentry to the University if:

a. after dismissal, they have graduated from an approved LVN program with a 3.0 GPA,

b. successfully passed the NCLEX-PN; and

c. meets all admissions requirements.

The applicant must be in good standing with the University with the exception of previous Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) or GPA requirements. If any other “good standing” issues exist, the individual will be admitted on probationary status.  If a student in probationary status is not in “good standing” after completing their first-semester of coursework, they will be dismissed from the University.   If an applicant was previously dismissed from West Coast University for any conduct violations, an applicant will not be admitted to the program.  Please refer to the “Good Standing” policy for specific information on the terms of this policy.

If the applicant successfully reenters, the University will waive the general education recency
requirements. Credit for core nursing classes successfully passed at West Coast University will be
considered with the approval of the Campus Dean of Nursing.
