Admission to UNC

If you are seeking a bachelor's degree in nursing at UNC you will need to meet the UNC undergraduate admission requirements for the academic year for which you are applying.

The UNC Office of Admissions does accept applications year round and reviews them on a rolling basis, which means you will receive an admission to UNC decision two to three weeks after submitting your application including all supporting documents.

For admission to UNC, please visit the webpage for the office of Admissions: https://www.unco.edu/admissions/ 

Admission to the School of Nursing

Entry into the upper division clinical nursing major requires a separate application submitted during a designated time frame in January of a Traditional student's sophomore year. This application is available online in early November. Once you have completed your application to the university and have your Bear Number you may make an appointment with the Pre-Nursing advisor. Please call the main Nursing office at (970) 351-2293 to make an appointment.

For more information visit the School of Nursing Admission Overview page.

All required prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of the spring semester of application to the School of Nursing. Not all required prerequisite courses are offered every semester so careful planning between you and your advisor will be necessary.

Advising for Admitted Transfer Students

Once these three steps outlined on the Transfer Students page have been completed, either sign up for on-campus Student Orientation or complete the online orientation.  It will be accessed via a link from an email sent from orientation@unco.edu to your BearMail account.
