Remember, before you apply . . .

Please check your major to ensure there is an available spot and you're meeting any program-specific deadlines, as several of our majors are highly competitive. This is especially true for our CCNE-accredited nursing program, which requires freshmen applications to be received by November 15th. Decisions are not made on a rolling basis for nursing, unlike the vast majority of our undergraduate programs.

Additionally, there are several highly competitive majors for transfer applicants. The transfer application deadline is March 1st. We look forward to your application!

Discovering a practicum advantage

These Huskies are seeing their potential as future teachers come into focus because of their practicum, all the while gaining a competitive edge for when it’s time to land their own classroom.

Among the pre-student teaching classroom experiences Bloomsburg University education majors get include the Central Columbia Professional Development School, where technology plays an integral role in classroom learning.

Through real classrooms, diverse practicums and experienced research-driven faculty, BU's College of Education pairs a strong teaching foundation with quality field experiences to broaden the teacher candidate’s understanding of effective classroom instruction and establish a platform for putting theory and research into practice.

We're coming to your school!

Each year, Bloomsburg University admissions counselors visit almost 400 high schools throughout the region, as well as Delaware, Maryland, New York and New Jersey. In addition, we attend many college fairs in high schools and community colleges.

Find out which counselor will visit your school. We look forward to meeting you! If your school is not listed, please contact any one of our counselors who will gladly answer your questions and help you learn more about why we're "A great place to be you!"
