Admission to the Undergraduate Program
The Capstone College of Nursing undergraduate curriculum consists of a planned program of studies designed to be completed in 4 years. During the first four semesters of the curriculum plan, designated as the lower division or the preprofessional portion of the curriculum, students take required sciences, humanities, and other courses that lay the foundation for upper division nursing courses. Students are admitted to lower division once they meet The University of Alabama admission requirements and declare nursing as their major. All lower division coursework must be completed prior to progressing to the upper division.
