Fall 2014 Admission - News & Updates

Dear BSN Applicants,

Thank you for your patience!  We know you are anxiously waiting for your admission decision, and we are working extended hours to bring you news as quickly as possible.  In the meantime, we hope the following information will be helpful!  Please check back for updates on the admission process.  Due to human resource limitations, please do not call the School of Nursing.  Thank you!

  1. We received 460 applications for 80 seats.  Based on student-reported data, the applicant ranked 80 has 76 points--the applicant ranked 120 has 71 points.  We anticipate the point cut off will be slightly lower when we have completed the evaluation process, but we regret it will be higher than previous semesters. 
  2. Admission decisions and complete evaluations will be emailed to all applicants April 30 (tentative); before the May 1 University, Intent to Enroll deadline.
  3. If you have not received your admission decision by your registration date, please register for the courses you would take if you were not selected for admission to the nursing program.  Do not miss your opportunity to register for courses!  If you are selected for admission, placement in your nursing courses is guaranteed!  It is your responsibility to enroll in any remaining corequisite courses.  The staff will enroll you in your nursing courses in mid-June (the exact date will be provided with your orientation materials).  Completing any remaining corequisite courses over summer will lighten your load next fall.  Summer registration opens on April 14 at Sac State--April 21 at local Los Rios Community Colleges.  These dates are tentative--please check campus websites to confirm!
  4. Frequently Asked Questions - Please read carefully--twice would be good!
  5. Newly Admitted Transfer Students - Please see IMPORTANT deadlines below.
