Associate Degree Nursing (R.N.) Petition Process

The Petition Window is currently CLOSED.


Tier 1 – Application

Please refer to the “Admission Requirements” link on the right hand menu for requirements, documents, and due dates.  Tier 1 must be done in order to be eligible for Tier 2 – Petition. Although TEAS is now part of the admission requirements, scores will still need to be uploaded as a PDF document into the petition form.


Tier 2 – Petition

Complete all of the general education (pre-nursing) and TEAS requirements.

All must be done to be eligible to petition*  When all requirements are done, student picks the next available petition window for the semester, location and section they wish to petition for.  Students must petition within four years from the semester for which they applied.

* Students may be in progress with the last few classes during the semester in which they petition, but they will be considered in a secondary priority level (compared to completed petitioners).

Petition Window for Fall 2015, will open the 3rd Monday in April, 2015 and remain open for twelve calendar days.
