Selection and Notification

Selection Process

A committee, which includes faculty from the specialist area indicated on the application, will evaluate each application. Alternates may be admitted through the second week of the semester in the event a student does not accept admission or drops out.  Applicants who are not admitted may reapply for the next admission date.

Notification Process

Applicants will be notified of the admission decisions by the University.  Those who are accepted will be notified in writing and must complete and sign a letter of intent and mail back to the SON Graduate Department. A new application to the university will need to be made for each subsequent semester. Applications of those not admitted will be kept and filed in the School of Nursing for one year, at which time they will be destroyed.
