The Admission Process

  1. Apply for admission to CCBC.
  2. Participate in assessment testing, if necessary.
  3. See an advisor to plan a course of study to prepare for admission.
  4. Complete any developmental courses as required by assessment testing results.
  5. Enroll in prerequisite and general education courses.
  6. Complete all prerequisites and as many general education and program requirements as possible. The minimum acceptable overall CCBC GPA is 2.00. The minimum acceptable GPA on the prerequisites, general education courses, and program requirements is 2.50.
  7. Participate in pre-admission testing, the Test of Essential Academic Skills. Applicants must complete the TEAS prior to their application deadline. Be sure to report your scores to "CCBC-TEAS".
  8. Apply for admission to the nursing program of choice. Log into your SIMON account. Select the student services tab and then admissions. You may apply to the SHP nursing program of your choice. The $50 application fee is due at time of submission.
  9. Submit all other paperwork, including AP scores, CLEP scores, external transcripts, patient contact documentation forms, and copies of licenses and certificates, to the School of Health Professions Admissions Office, by the application deadline.
    • Admissions decisions are generally made 6 - 8 weeks after the application deadline. Status letters will be mailed to all applicants at that time.
    • All nursing program acceptances are provisional, contingent upon successful completion of a CPR certification at the healthcare provider level, submission of proof of current health insurance, and completion of a physical examination form that includes serum titers or vaccinations for communicable diseases.
    • If the applicant is not accepted, he or she may submit a new application for the next application cycle. Applications are not automatically rolled over to the next semester. However, retaking the TEAS is not required; this is left to the discretion of the applicant. Bear in mind that the TEAS test are only good for two years after the testing date. Application folders are retained for one year and any paperwork in the applicant folder will not have to be resubmitted during that time frame.
