School of Nursing


After the application deadline, Covenant School of Nursing will consider all qualified applicants whose application files are complete and up to date. Selected applicants are then sent an email regarding their status as accepted, alternate, disqualified or declined admission. Status notifications are sent four weeks after the application deadline. We will not release any admission status updates over the phone to applicants or to family members. Tentatively accepted and alternate candidates will be required to complete all of the requirements according to the deadlines listed in their admission packet.

How to check your admission status online

We thank you for taking the time and effort to apply to Covenant School of Nursing. Because we are unable to speak with every applicant individually, we are posting the most frequently asked questions in regards to admissions. The RN program is extremely academically, clinically and personally rigorous. Success in the program requires that a student excel in a full time program of study including multiple and competing demands such as classroom, clinical, group projects, and community service.


What does tentatively accepted mean? It means that you have been selected based upon successfully completion of the admission requirements. You are not fully accepted into the program until you meet all the admissions requirements and deadlines specified in the admissions packet.

When will I receive my official acceptance letter? A final letter of admission is mailed to the student after all medical requirements are met, all final official sealed transcripts have been received, and the admission file is complete. Until receipt of this final notification, the student's admission remains tentative.

I was selected as an alternate, when will my admission status be updated? Admission statuses can be updated at any time throughout the admissions process.

Can you tell me where I stand as an alternate? The Admissions Committee does not disclose the order of the alternates.

Why was I denied admission? Many factors contribute to why the Admissions Committee may have denied an application. The Admissions Committee does not disclose reasons as to why an applicant was not selected.

Should I repeat the pre-requisite courses to increase my chances of being accepted? That is a decision for the applicant. Please check with the college or university you plan to repeat the course. There are many policies in regards to repeating a course.

Can I reapply? Yes, please make an appointment with the Admissions Officer to review your file if you are planning to reapply.
