School of Nursing Important Dates

The School of Nursing adheres to a strict admissions process. Important information about the dates of admission, interviews (Nurse Anesthesiology track only), decisions, orientation, etc. can be found below on this page. Note that the university-level graduate application forms typically open one (1) year in advance of the term to which admission is desired; changes were made in May 2023 by the university regarding when undergraduate applications will open for future terms. The exact date will vary slightly each application period.

All application forms*, transcripts, application fees, supplemental items, licensure, and certifications (if applicable), and entrance exam scores (if applicable) are due by 11:59 p.m. on the listed deadline without exception.

IMPORTANT:  All dates and deadlines are subject to change without notice, based on factors such as the number of applications received and spots available.  We encourage you to apply early.
