Wait List Application Filing Periods
There will be two application-filing periods each year, one during the fall semester and one during the spring semester. Dates are posted above.
Completion of Wait List Application Packets

Completed packets must be hand-delivered or mailed to be received in the Admissions and Records Office no later than the final date of the wait list application filing period. As wait list application filing packets are submitted, each applicant will receive a receipt. A daily-randomized login number will be assigned to each packet submitted. Once eligibility is verified, applications will be given to the Health Sciences Administrative Offices for placement on the master waiting list. Applicants will be notified of their waiting list number by the Health Sciences & University Programs office.


Maintaining Current Contact Information

Once an assigned number for the waiting list is determined, it is the applicant’s responsibility to maintain current information (name, address, telephone number, email address) with the Health Sciences & University Programs office. There are times when an individual on the waiting list changes his/her mind or moves, etc., and, therefore, other applicant’s may move their placement to an earlier date.  The Health Sciences & University Programs office needs the most current information in order to offer the earlier placement opportunity.

Typically emails to AOL and Hotmail accounts from Shasta College are not reliably delivered.  We highly recommend that students & applicants establish e-mail accounts with services such as gmail.com or yahoo.com, as we have found that emails to these accounts are more reliably delivered.

Notice of Acceptance
All enrollment placements are based on space availability.  As enrollment spaces are determined, applicants scheduled for enrollment in the next class will receive written notification of their status.  If when offered enrollment, the applicant cannot attend they will have the option to defer enrollment with their name moved to the bottom of the Wait List.  The option to defer is available one time only. 

A Completed Wait List Application Packet includes ALL of the following: 

  • Shasta College Application
  • Vocational Nursing Program Wait List Application Filing form
  • Official transcripts of ALL colleges attended.  These will be used to document the successful completion of all prerequisite courses.
  • *Official high school transcripts showing date of graduation, completion of California High School Proficiency Examination, or verified copy of G.E.D. test results.

Additional Information related to the completion of the wait list application packet:

  • Shasta College work will be obtained from the Admissions and Records office and made an official part of the wait list application filing packet. 
  • Failure to include ALL other college and/or high school records will result in the automatic disqualification of the wait list application filing packet.
  • Other college and/or high school records that may already be on file with the Shasta College Admissions and Records office CANNOT be used for this packet.  
  • Once an applicant has been placed on the waiting list, it will not be necessary to re-submit a wait list application filing packet. 
  • If an applicant is determined to be ineligible, the applicant must re-submit all other college and/or high school records with each new wait list application filing packet.
  • Wait list applicants must review the Vocational Nursing Practice Policy and submit the Pre-Enrollment Practice Policy Acknowledgment Form with their application.

*Official transcripts are those that have been received from another educational institution in a sealed envelope and remain UNOPENED.  Once an envelope containing a transcript has been opened (seal broken, it cannot be accepted by Shasta College for purposes of wait list application filing to the Vocational Nursing program.
