Applications are available on-line and completed applications must be turned in to the Recruitment and Admissions Office, with the exception of the Traditional and BADNAP nursing program applications that are turned in through NursingCAS, and the Nursing CLP, PTA, SLPA, and OTA applications, which are turned in online.


The information below is a general guideline for all health programs.  Students applying for the Traditional and BADNAP Nursing programs will apply through NursingCAS, and addiitonal information and instructions will be listed in the NursingCAS application.

Applicants must submit the most current and updated official college transcripts from every regionally-accredited institution previously attended, by the application deadline (Traditional and BADNAP Nursing program applicants applying through NursingCAS must have transcripts sent to NursingCAS; please review information regarding transcript submission on the online application).
