• Pre-Licensure BSN Admission Requirements

    Admission Application

    The first step in the admission process is to submit your online application for admission to CCU’s 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

    The application process for admission to CCU’s BSN program is competitive. Students work with their Student Service Advisor in submitting admission documents for application to the nursing program. The applicant must meet specific requirements at each step of the admission process in order to progress and be admitted to the pre-licensure BSN program.

    Students enter the 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 15 all applicants must have completed the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS V) exam. Complete this exam at any CCU Center testing site or through any official testing site statewide. Fees apply. This is a proctored exam. Download and read the ATI Test Instruction Letter. Schedule your test by contacting a CCU Center Administrator. Visit the ATI Testing website to set up your ATI profile (create an account), pay for the test, and take the TEAS V exam.
    • By December 15 all applicants must have completed the interview and essay. Contact your Student Service Advisor for a date and time. During the interview, applicants will be required to write a brief (one page) essay response to a scenario that is relevant to health care and nursing.
    • By January 15 all applicants will be notified in writing of their admission status. Decisions made by the Nursing Admissions Committee are final.
    • By the end of fall semester, all applicants must have successfully completed all prerequisites, with the exception of one (1) Biology course and/or nine (9) CAGS credits.

    Class size is limited. Admission into the College of Adult and Graduate Studies does NOT guarantee admission into the nursing program. To be considered for admission, students must have:
