Initial application processing uses the Chancellor’s Office formula for acceptance, which calculates overall GPA, science GPA, and English GPA, as well as counting negatively if an applicant has repeated one of the science prerequisites (Anatomy, Physiology, Microbiology) due to a non-passing grade (D or F) in the past 10 years. Part of the calculation includes an established cut score wherein applicants that score at least an 80% on the Chancellor’s Office formula will be considered for admission and those that score below will not be considered. Applications that score above 80%, and meet all other requirements, are placed into a lottery and randomly selected (by computer generated method) for offers of admission until all available seats are exhausted.
Those who are sent offers of admission will still need to meet other criteria as described in the application handbook (background check, written response to offers of admission, etc).
*All prerequisites and GE courses must be completed by the end of the semester in which an applicant submits their application.

Nursing Pre-Application Orientation Workshops for 2013 have been completed. We anticipate the next set of workshops to be in October and November 2013 for LVN to RN Bridge Students.
Mandatory Pre-Application Workshop is required for students who are applying to the Nursing Program.
If you have attended a workshop within the past year, your "number" is still valid and you do not need to attend a new one.
