Admission to the BSN program is through a selective admission process. Successful applicants are identified through the combined evaluation of GPA (based on program prerequisites) and a portfolio. The portfolio includes all non-academic requirements including a Criminal Record Check, personal resume, CRT and the CASPer screening tool designed to assess non-cognitive personal characteristics and residency. Applicants will be ranked using a metric which incorporates Academic and non-Academic portfolio information
Written offers will be sent to the highest ranked applicants. Receipt of a $500.00 non-refundable seat deposit by the offer-acceptance deadline is required otherwise the offer will be considered declined.
Once the seats have been filled, a waitlist will be created for the current intake. Applicants on the waitlist will be offered seats which remain or become vacant after the offer-acceptance deadline.
Applicants who are not accepted in to the program will receive notification. Applicants who are not admitted or do not take a seat in a given year are required to reapply to be considered in a subsequent year; waitlists are not carried over.
