Advanced Placement Criteria
Advanced placement refers to students desiring to challenge enrollment in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program for placement in an advanced semester (2nd or 3rd semester only).
Applicants desiring advanced placement in the ADN program must apply for the program by submitting applications during the established ADN Application filing periods. Enrollment placements are based on space availability. As class positions become available, applicants are invited to enroll in a class.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to submit proof of eligibility and supporting materials upon request.
