  • Traditional BSN Application Instructions

    Application availability and deadline

    Applications are available online beginning July 1, one year prior to the year of admission. Traditional BSN students are admitted one time each academic year, during the summer semester, and the deadline to apply is Jan. 15. Applications received less than two weeks prior to the deadline cannot be assured of adequate time for notification of any missing or incomplete documents.

    How to apply

    When applying, all parts to the application, including any supplemental materials, must be received by the deadline. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status in March. Please note: If you would like to be considered for both the Accelerated BSN program, as well as the Traditional BSN program, you must submit two separate applications. However, you only need only to submit one set of transcripts and test scores.
