I am a pre-nursing student at WKCTCS (Paducah) and noticed the KY forum seems overrun with people in Lexington-Louisville area. If you are a current or former student at the college or just a... Read More

    I got bumped back to 56 points since i don't have 12 credit hours at a "regionally accredited" school only a B.A. at a "nationally accredited" school.I know I'm going to have to start from scratch and my GPA will have the benefit of a fresh start, and I originally was counting on having 56 points, but they sent me a letter saying 61 and now i got bumped . They were bumping me to 52 points and using my high school GPA but I pointed out that on the point scale sheet it says if 12 credit hours at a regionally accredited school are not available the GPA from a non-regionally accredited school would apply next... then high school GPA. just an oversight I'm sure, they are very busy at the moment.

    Cutoff will probably be 60 or so and since My income is WAY up from last year by the time I apply for Grants etc for fall start I won't qualify for anything (no Pell since I have a bachelors already) so I'm going to have to student loan it all... on top of the $18k I already have from the bachelors. Hopefully I can pull off a 4.0 and get the automatic academic scholarship for the remaining courses once i do 24 credits in prereqs and non-nursing classes.

    Still anxious to get the letter either way.

    It could still happen. I've heard of people with 56 points getting in in the Spring. And even if you don't get in this time, you're points will increase when you bankrupt your old grades so you'll have an excellent chance of getting in in the Fall. Your NLN score is awesome. Good Luck and dont let it get you down.

    Ummmm, can someone tell me about this automatic academic scholarship? When you say 4.0 is that Cum. or Combined Cum? Is that a solid 4.0 or is that a 3.976? I have 24 credits in pre-req non nursing courses....

    I only have 21 credit hours but I do have a solid 4.0. I'll have over 24 hours of pre-reqs after the fall. I've never heard of automatic scholarships. I would also like any info on those!!

    google wkctcs and automatic scholarship. as an existing student you need 3.9+ gpa and 24-35 completed hours then just apply and you get 100,75,50, or 25 percent paid tuition depending on GPA and ACT score.

    Thanks for the info. So if I have 24 credit hours after this fall, and can keep my 4.0 I can get one of these for the spring, even if I start nursing school? It doesn't specify if the classes have to be general eds or if they can be towards a program. Can you imagine getting 50-100% of your tuition paid? I would love that!!

    Unfortunately, it says a complete scholarship application has to be submitted, and the scholarship deadline for 09-10 school year has already passed. I think it may be too late for us....but we can apply for the following year....
