    revesreves,

    you have to meet with one of the financial aid officer. Federal student aid will just cover 18k. Then you have to apply for private loans for the rest.

    Hello all,
    I applied to Oakland as my first choice (because I live 7 blocks away) and the San Mateo April cohort as my second choice. I haven't heard anything, but my cell phone was stolen at the MacArthur BART and I won't have a new one until next week. I'm assuming they won't be making calls this weekend (hope not for my sake).

    Hi-

    I applied to the Oakland ABSN (Summer) cohort. Once you receive your acceptance, you will receive "next step" instructions to enroll and complete your offer package. The Admissions office will provide some basic information about financial aid, and also during the first orientation financial aid information will be presented. From what I heard from another gal who was accepted, you have about a month/two to obtain financial aid and SMU does provide enough time/grace period even as the cohort begins.

    Good luck everyone!!

    Hey April/SF cohort!

    I sent in my acceptance for the April cohort. I haven't received any more emails besides the acceptance, have any of you received any more emails?

    Also, anybody have an idea when in April it will start?

    I received two emails. One about background check, health exam, and financial aid. Another about orientation dates. You receive these once SM receives your letter of intent and deposit. Hope this helps!

    Thanks biscuit! I think they are sending my emails to my SMU account which I don't have access to anymore, ugh!

    When is the orientation? Did it say the start date?

    You should've received an email with a checklist on it.

    Hi NishaA,

    Orientation will be on 03/21 - 03/22. Start date is on 04/22. You can access the academic calendar on SMU website.
    Academic Calendar | Samuel Merritt University

    Is your SMU email your primary email on their file? I was informed by my counselor that she will not send it on my SMU email account and asked for an alternative email. Maybe you should contact your counselor.

    Kyle-Thanks for the dates! I had a feeling I was missing out on some emails. I've contacted the counselor, but not getting a quick response. Will try again.

    Hey everyone! Congratulations on your acceptance. I am attending the BSN program in Oakland (I started in the Spring) and my friend from HS is doing the ABSN in Oakland as well. What we have learned is that the administration can be a little sloppy, and it does seem that they wait until last minute to get everything together. Be patient with them, and just make sure you constantly check your e-mail and your spam folder as well. You will be given an SMU e-mail, so make sure to log into that as well.

    So far, I love the school and the program. ABSN is definitely a lot tougher since it is faster, but everyone who I have talked to absolutely loves the school. (3 of my college roommates went to SMU in Sacramento and said the same thing).

    Anyways, I'm excited for you guys! Congratulations again
