The process to be admitted into the School of Nursing is a two-step process:
Admission to the College
The admission policy for the School of Nursing requires that students must first be admitted to the College. Students must submit a transfer application to the college Admissions Office, declaring nursing as a major. Official transcripts (sealed) must be sent to the Admissions Office for review by a transfer counselor. Once the complete review of the admissions materials has taken place, a letter will be sent to the applicant advising them of the decision for admission. Students will be advised of the number of credits transferred to the college and will also be informed of the completion of math and writing requirements. It is important to note that, if accepted, the student must submit the required acceptance fee before admission to the College can become official.
