• Pre-Licensure BSN Admission Requirements

    Admission Application

    The first step in the admission process to the Pre-Licensure BSN option is to submit an online application for admission to the College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS). Submit proof of identity and all official college transcripts for CAGS admission to:

    Service Central - BSN Admission
    Colorado Christian University
    10190 Bannock Street, Suite 200
    Northglenn, CO 80260

    Following acceptance to CAGS, a Student Service Advisor (SSA) will be assigned to assist with the application process to the actual nursing program. The application process for admission into nursing is competitive. Admission into the College of Adult and Graduate Studies does NOT guarantee admission into the Pre-Licensure BSN option. The applicant must meet specific requirements at each step of the admission process in order to progress and be admitted.

    Students enter the Pre-Licensure BSN Program once annually. Nursing program courses begin summer semester Block 1. Applications are processed and evaluated for annual admission according to the following timeline:

    • By October 15th all applicants must have completed the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V) exam. Please see the ATI Test Instruction Letter for complete details.
    • By the end of fall semester, all applicants must have successfully completed all prerequisites, with the exception of (1) Biology course and/or (9) CAGS credits.
    • By December 15th all applicants must have completed their nursing interview and essay. Contact your Student Service Advisor for an appointment. During the interview, applicants will be required to write a brief (one page) essay responding to a scenario that is relevant to health care and nursing.
    • By January 15th all applicants will be notified in writing of their admission status. Decisions made by the Nursing Admissions Committee are final.

    Class size is limited. To be considered for admission, students should have:

    • A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher;
    • A minimum biological science GPA of 2.5 or higher;
    • A minimum grade of C or higher in all prerequisite courses;

    Please note: All nursing prerequisites must be successfully completed prior to taking any nursing courses.
