Accelerated BSN Application Process

Spring 2019 application period: December 11, 2017 - August 3, 2018

Fall 2019 application period: November 1, 2018 - March 15, 2019

Important Admission changes beginning fall 2019.

The accelerated track is transitioning from spring admission to fall admission only beginning fall 2019. There is only one start per year.

Application changes:

The application process for the accelerated track effectively changed in April, 2018.

If an applicant has all items completed (TEAS, Prerequisites) then they can go directly into the Nursing CAS application and apply to the program. Applicants no longer need an FAU email address to apply.

If an applicant has prerequisites left and wants to take them at FAU they need to apply as non-degree and then register for their prerequisites.

If an applicant wants their transcripts reviewed, they need to apply to FAU as non-degree, and send each official transcript to the university. Once the applicant is accepted, receives a Z number, and all transcripts have been received to the university, an advising appointment can be made with Chere Robinson via email crobinson@health.fau.edu 

If the applicant graduated from FAU and would like transcript advising, only their Z number needs to be provided. All transcripts should already be available at the university.
