Application Review
for Colleges of Nursing & Health Related Professions

Initial Review

The Student Admissions Office will make an initial review of your application. Applications are reviewed in the order they are completed. Once completed, the Student Admissions Office will send notification by email, to your preferred email address as listed on your application, informing you of your current status. At that time, we may forward your application to the Department for final review, and/or request additional information, or place your application on hold pending receipt of additional information and/or documents.

Requests for Additional Information

The Student Admissions Office may request additional information from you to assist in the evaluation of your credentials. It is your responsibility to submit the requested information. Your checklist will indicate whether or not the item has been received. After the additional information is received, the Student Admissions Office, and/or the Department to which you are applying, will re-review your application.

Interviews

Interview dates and times vary each year depending on the applicant pool and number of qualified, competitive and completed applications received. If you are chosen for an interview, the program to which you applied will contact you with more details. The undergraduate nursing programs (Accelerated Nursing and RN-BS in Nursing) and Clinical Nurse Specialist graduate programs do not conduct interviews. Following your interview, it may take as long as 6-8 weeks before you will be notified of your status. You will be notified of your admissions status in writing.
