Additional information related to the completion of the Multicriteria Selection Process Application Packet:

  • Criteria Items 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 (see Overview of Multicriteria Selection Points) are optional. To qualify for points in those areas, submit the required supporting documentation.
  • Shasta College course work will be obtained from the Admissions and Records office and made an official part of the application filing packet. 
  • Failure to include ALL other college and/or high school records will result in the automatic disqualification of the 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.  
  • Documentation showing completion all non-time sensitive clinical requirements must be submitted with your application packet. Failure to submit documentation of all non-time sensitive requirements will result in automatic disqualification of the application packet.
  • If an applicant is not selected for enrollment for the semesters pertaining to the application filing period, the applicant must re-submit all required documentation, including other college and/or high school records, with each new application filing packet.
  • If you were a previously continually qualified applicant, you may elect to use your previously submitted college and/or high school records that are on file with the Shasta College Admissions & Records (A&R) Office. It is highly recommended that you contact the A&R office to confirm that all of your records are still on file as external records, such as transcripts from other schools, are purged over time. There may be a possibility that you may need to resubmit all or some of your college and/or high school records.

Once eligibility is reviewed, notification of application status will be sent via email. 

For information on how applicants are selected, please view ADN Enrollment Through Multicriteria Selection Process.

It is the applicant’s responsibility to maintain current information (name, address, telephone number, email address) with the Health Sciences & University Programs office. 

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.

Therefore, please make sure that we have your current contact information -- especially email address -- by filling out our online Contact Information Change Form if your information changes after you submit your application.
