    They also require two religions classes and a philosophy class. I highly recommend going to one of their info sessions and they will explain everything there for you. I went to one and it really enlightened me to what they require and expect from you. You can sign up for one online at the website. If I lived closer to Bridgeport I would have gone there. Hope I helped! :-)
    Actually its only one religion class (World Religions) and one philosophy (ethics). You can take another religion class if you want to use for your humanities elective class.

    Hi there!
    I'm currently a student at UConn Stamford and after a lot of thought, I have decided to pursue Nursing as my career! UConn Stamford does not offer an undergraduate nursing program so I have been looking at schools around my area to apply to. St. Vincent's College is my top choice. NCC's nursing program is my close second. My goal is to start out by getting my Associates, then if possible, go on to get my BSN later down the road. I am only a junior however I have transferred to over 3 schools. My high school GPA was around a 2.89. My freshman year I went to University of Tampa and received a 2.92 GPA, I then went to NCC for a year and received a 3.5 GPA, however Spring 2012 I went to UConn Storrs and did very poorly due to an experience that put me in a very dark place and made it difficult to concentrate on my studies. I received below a 2.0 GPA and am nervous that my Storrs GPA will jeopardize any chance of me getting into a nursing program. I am in the process of trying to erase these marks from my transcript however I'm not sure if my petition will be granted. I have taken A&P and got an A and took chemistry and got a B. Is there any chance of me getting into a nursing program (preferrably St. Vincent's or the NCC program) with this UConn Storrs GPA weighing me down? In other words, do they look at my previous academic history as a whole or will they solely base their decision on my storrs transcript? Please be honest! I want to know if I at least have a shot!!! Thanks!!!!

    Go to a ct community college info session. They will explain the application process better. The new process is they only take classes that meet your pre-reqs for the application process. It's possible that your uconn grades won't count depending on what you took. And that a&p grade will definitely help you. Hope is not all lost

    I want to say mine was a regular sized envelope with the acceptance letter and a couple other sheets of paper.
    Not what I'd call a 'fat envelope'.
