Note: Practical Nurse applicants will be offered Conditional Admission on a competitive basis, based on GPA ranking.
The GPA calculation for Conditional Admission will be calculated according to one of the following:
- 15 high school credits from those courses required for admission. If any of the specified courses are in progress at the transcript submission deadline, the 20-level in the subject will be used.
- 18 post-secondary credits including all credits from the most-recently completed term plus the best grades from the next most recent term.
- Applicants with fewer than 18 post-secondary credits will have their GPA calculated using all post-secondary credits plus credits from the most recently completed High School semester using the best grade(s) from the courses required for admission.
Note: Post-secondary credits will be used in the Conditional Admission GPA calculation before High School credits, regardless of when the post-secondary credits were earned. Post-secondary credits do NOT include High School equivalents completed at a post-secondary institution (i.e. Academic upgrading high school equivalents completed at RDC).
Note: Transcript deadline for the initial GPA calculation is March 1.
