Dual Admission is a special transfer program between Ursuline and Tri-C. Through Dual Admission, you will start your college degree at Tri-C, taking one Ursuline course per semester at the Tri-C rate. This program allows you to try Ursuline without any commitment. Your Ursuline classes will even reverse-transfer to Tri-C to fulfill requirements for your associates degree. Transfer equivalencies can be found on our Transferology site.
As a Dual Admission student, you are fully integrated into campus life at Ursuline while attending Tri-C full time. You’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re on track to earn a bachelor’s degree from Ursuline from your very first semester at Tri-C, thanks to an early relationship with your Ursuline Advisor.
Other benefits of Dual Admission include:
You can become a Dual Admission student at Ursuline directly from high school or after you’ve already been enrolled at Tri-C.
If you’re applying for Dual Admission as a high school student, you’ll need to meet the same criteria as students applying to Ursuline for full-time enrollment directly from high school. To make a qualified decision on high school applicants, the Admission Committee will holistically consider the strength of your high school curriculum, high school GPA, ACT or SAT scores, writing ability and community/extracurricular involvement. While no minimum grade point average, class rank or standardized test scores are specified in this process for admission to most academic programs, these measures must provide evidence of your ability to be successful in courses at Ursuline. If your intended major in college is Nursing, Ursuline will look for a minimum high school GPA of 2.75 with grades higher than C in Chemistry, Biology, and Algebra II, along with an ACT composite of 20 or higher.
If you’re applying after already enrolling at Tri-C, you’ll need to meet the criteria listed above if you have earned fewer than 12 non-developmental, transferrable credits. If you have earned more than 12 non-developmental, transferrable credits, they must include ENG 1010 and MATH1250 or higher with a minimum grade of C in each and cumulative GPA of 2.0 to be accepted for the Dual Admission program with Ursuline.
As a high school student: Apply to Ursuline online and submit your official high school transcript and ACT or SAT. See How to Apply for more information on submitting these documents to Ursuline. Then download, print, and complete this form, and submit it to a Tri-C Enrollment Center on any Tri-C campus.
As a full-time Tri-C student: Apply to Ursuline online and submit your official high school transcript if you have earned fewer than 12 non-developmental, transferrable credits at Tri-C. You can elect to send Ursuline your ACT or SAT scores if you have earned fewer than 30 transferrable credits at Tri-C and are under age 23. If you did not take the ACT or SAT as a high school student, please contact your Ursuline Admission Counselor for other options. See How to Apply for more information on submitting these documents to Ursuline. Then download, print, and complete this form, and submit it to a Tri-C Enrollment Center on any Tri-C campus.

Students who dually enroll full-time in the Lakeland and Ursuline programs can complete an associate degree in nursing (RN) in five semesters and then complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing (BSN) in as few as two additional semesters post-licensure. Students will attend classes throughout the academic year including online courses during the summer semester.
New first-time Lakeland students who are college ready can start immediately with no waiting. Students are eligible to take the state nursing exam upon earning the associate degree. Students can seek employment once they are licensed as a registered nurse.
Ursuline is offering a reduced tuition rate of $360 per credit hour for its courses, which is less than one-third of its undergraduate rate.
