Receipt of Application
The College of Nursing Admissions and Enrollment Office will notify an applicant via e-mail upon receipt of an application. Applications will be reviewed in the order received.
Academic Achievement Score
The Admissions and Enrollment Office reviews an applicant’s official transcript(s) to determine his/her academic achievement score. The academic achievement score is determined by evaluating an applicant’s:
- Cumulative prerequisite GPA
- Science GPA
- An additional 2 points will be added for candidates with a 3.0 or greater Science GPA
- Each prerequisite course
In light of recent challenges due to COIVID-19 pandemic, the College of Nursing will temporarily waive the TEAS exam as a an admissions requirement for all prospective students applying to the BSN programs at Roseman University effective April 1st, 2020. Until further notice, interview eligibility, will be based on prerequisite GPAs. Admissions consideration will be based on a combination of interview scores and prerequisite GPA’s. We will continue to competitively review each applicant; therefore, interviews and admissions into our program is not guaranteed.
The TEAS results will be reviewed to ensure that the minimum required scores have been met. Applicants will be given a score in each area of the TEAS based on the scores earned on the TEAS.
If granted, the Admissions and Enrollment Office will contact the applicant via email or telephone to schedule an interview date and time. Therefore, it is essential that the Admissions and Enrollment Office be contacted if there are any changes in contact information.
The interview panel consists of two interviewers and may consist of a student representative. The student candidate is scored according to the following components:
- Communication (verbal and written)
- Team Skills
- Problem-Solving Skills
- Overall Impression
During the interview, the student candidate will be asked to provide a writing sample on a subject or question provided by the Admissions Committee. The student candidate will be scored on grammar, content and format.
After the interview, the academic achievement, TEAS, interview, and writing sample scores will be totaled and ranked. The Admissions Committee will consider the score in their final decision.
An admissions decision is generally made after each interview session. The Admissions Committee may choose to place an applicant on hold until all applicants are interviewed and reviewed.
Offer of Admission
Applicants offered admission will receive an admissions packet that includes:
- A letter from the College of Nursing Admissions and Enrollment Office granting admission into the program
- An Admissions Packet
In order to accept an offer of admission, an applicant should follow the directions in the Admissions Office and return all required documents and a seating deposit of $250 to the College of Nursing Admissions and Enrollment Office.
Failure to turn in all required documents will delay the student’s enrollment into the program.
Admission to the College of Nursing is contingent upon the Admissions and Enrollment Office receiving official transcripts documenting successful completion of all prerequisites, and meeting minimum admission requirements on or prior to the first day of classes, unless a conditional enrollment has been granted.
Applicants who decline, are denied, or withdraw from an offer of admission must reapply to be considered for admission in future classes.
Admission to the College of Nursing Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program may not be deferred at any time.
In the event a student is granted admission to the College of Nursing Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program (BSN) and, due to extenuating circumstances, unable to start the program during the term of admission, the application of the student will be rolled to the following term’s application pool for review.
Admissions acceptance will not be deferred and the applicant must be reviewed following the process of the standard admission review for the following term. Students may not rollover their application any further than the next term.
Admission to a future term when applications are rolled over is not guaranteed under any circumstance. If the student is unable to resolve his/her situation to begin the next term a new application and application fee must be submitted for the future term in which he/she chooses to apply.
If a student has already submitted a seating deposit for the program and is unable to attend and wishes to rollover the application, the seating deposit will be refunded and the application will be rolled into the following term’s application pool for review. When applications are rolled over, admission into a new cohort is not guaranteed under any circumstance.
The rollover of applications is at the discretion of the College of Nursing. Students are responsible for contacting the College of Nursing to discuss the application rollover option in the event they have extenuating circumstances that prevent their matriculation into the accepted cohort.
A student who is admitted to the nursing program, contingent on completing the admission requirements and does not meet these contingencies cannot start the program. The student’s application will not rollover and the student must reapply by submitting a new application and application fee.
Requirement for Criminal Background Check
The nursing curriculum contains a didactic and clinical component. All students must complete a criminal background check as required by the clinical agencies. Student criminal background checks are conducted via Complio. Personnel from Human Resources at the clinical agency review the results of each student’s background check and either accept or deny the student the opportunity to enter their agency for the clinical rotation. A student who is not accepted in an agency for the clinical rotation cannot meet the curriculum requirements for graduation. The student must withdraw from the nursing program. Additional information may be obtained by visiting the curriculum page or contacting the appropriate Director of Clinical Resources.
Roseman offers financial aid to qualifying students in the form of grants, scholarships, and loans. Please note that the maximum federal aid (Pell Grant and Stafford Loans) will not cover the entire cost of tuition and fees of the program. Students may need to acquire a private loan to be able to finance the remainder of the cost of the program. The Financial Aid office recommends that loan applications be completed at least 4 weeks prior to the start of the program.
