When to apply
Beginning in September, application reviews are made as they are received and on their own merit. Applicants generally receive a decision within four to six weeks. Some majors fill quickly, so early application (September through November) is encouraged. To be considered for nursing, your application must be complete by Nov. 15 of your senior year.
