Acceptance into the Pre-Nursing Lower Division portion of the Traditional BSN program is decided by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. You can reach them at the contact information below.
Per Office of Undergraduate Admissions, in order to be eligible for consideration, students must have:

All enrolled USC undergraduates who seek a nursing degree are first admitted into the College of Nursing's lower division. This does not guarantee later admission into the upper division nursing major. In recent years, upper division admission has become increasingly competitive, with admitted students routinely posting cumulative GPAs in excess of 3.25.) Students may not have less than a "C" in any science or nursing course. Admission to the program is selective; therefore meeting minimum GPA requirements is not a guarantee of admission to the college.
From the Office of Undergraduate Admissions:
