If you listed courses that are in progress, you are required to provide transcripts to confirm your IP courses are completed with a C- or better grade. Your Science, Nursing and "Adjusted" Nursing GPAs will not be recalculated when your IP grades are received unless you fail or drop a course. If you do not receive a grade of C- or better your GPA will be recalculated and your rank in the applicant pool and admission status will be corrected.
