What if I was accepted to UNG for a particular semester but must delay my acceptance?

If you were accepted to UNG for a specific semester, be sure to notify the Office of the Registrar if you cannot attend as planned. If you don’t attend during the semester for which you were accepted and don’t notify the Registrar, your admission will be cancelled.

Do I need all core completed before applying to the RN-BSN program?

No, core courses can be taken along with required RN-BSN nursing courses, or they may be taken following completion of the nursing course work. The four-year time frame to complete the entire RN-BSN curriculum begins when you take the first nursing course.
