Before submitting a supplemental application for a nursing program, you must first apply for admission to HCC.
This application, official transcripts from all colleges attended (HCC calculates cumulative GPA from all college coursework as part of the scoring process), an official high school transcript or GED transcript, and official TEAS test results must be received by the Office of Admissions and Enrollment Management by the program application deadline of March 15. Students completing classes at HCC do not need to submit an official HCC transcript. Program acceptance or denial letters are mailed by late April.
Program begins in July. All practical nursing applicants are required to attend a Nursing Preview program prior to the application deadline. Notification regarding acceptance into the program is mailed in mid-April. Applicants must be a high school graduate or a recipient of a GED (proof must be on file by the application deadline). All documentation must be received by the deadline. Applicants will need to have completed BIO 203 and have BIO 204 completed or in progress, have ENG 101 completed or in progress, have PSY 101 completed or in progress and have MAT 099 completed or in progress or be eligible for MAT 100 (MAT 101 is not required) by the application deadline. For students who meet this criteria, a standardized test will be administered as a part of the selection criteria. A fee is charged for the exam. Study materials are available. Consult with an Academic Advisor for more information regarding the admissions criteria. Information can be accessed in the advisement area.
