Prospective students not attending ASU and ASU students considering changing their major to nursing, must first attend an on-campus BSN Information Session or an Online BSN Information Session prior to scheduling an appointment with an academic advisor. After attending the information session and submitting all unofficial college transcripts as directed during the information session, students may then call (602) 496-0888 to schedule an advising appointment.
