    Its not a matter of not wanting to hear it, it's just incorrect. That isn't what a wait list is. Thats what I was trying to clarify.

    Hi everyone! I JUST applied this week for September! Has anyone else? I hope I get in. I was not planning on applying until next September but I just lost my job and I figured now was the best time to do this. I have completed the following pre-reqs:
    English 101
    English 102
    Psychology 101
    Childhood Development
    Statistics
    Anatomy & Physiology 1

    I am planning on taking A&P2 this semester which starts next week and Micro and Sociology hopefully in the summer. So far I have A's in all the classes I've taken but I am worried because I live in Queens and I heard that they look at Nassau students first, is this true?

    Hi Kuklara,
    I just got accepted into NCC and start next week. I also heard that Nassau county residents get an extra point in the method that they use to evaluate applications. But they accept more apps for September than in January and you have all A's so I think you should still have a good shot. Good Luck! I thought they didn't accept applications until March for September admission.

    I believe the deadline is in March. I already submitted my application

    Online it says they accept apps march 8th to the 24th, but you already applied? I want to get my application in there.

    Maybe Kuklara submitted her application to admissions for admission to the college and transfer her credits. Admissions to the nursing school will be in March and is a separate application process submitted directly to the nursing department. One has to be already matriculated and have pre-req credit from another college already transferred. That's my guess, unless they changed the procedure from November when I applied

    so coming from suffolk, I need to get my transcript over to them now to apply in march then?

    all pre-req credits and electives that you can use towards nursing degree must appear on your nassau transcript before applying to the nursing program. You apply as a liberal arts major and then when you are accepted to the nursing program you will change your major. You must be a matriculated student first. Confirm with admissions, but that's how I did it in November. Transfer the credits by applying and sending or bring official transcripts from previous colleges.

    It's a different procedure for applying directly from high school but that's how it was for students with previous college credits

    Good Luck!

    Karenanda, I had just mailed in my application, check, and official transcripts to NCC about a week ago. They told me all I have to do now is it wait until April/May to hear back from them whether or not I got accepted or not. Your saying there's another application I need to fill out?? Everything I sent in is for Fall2010 and I was told that as long as what I sent in was in by march then I'm fine. The application I sent in was the one from the NCC site that you can print out and mail it to them. I selected the program of my choice and whatnot and the woman at admissions said everything seemed good to go. What do you mean by 'applying again' in march?

    Let me know, Thankyou.

    Russl66, Perhaps there is a different procedure for students not currently attending NCC or they changed the procedure. When I applied in November, there was an application from the nursing department and we had to submit directly to them. Best of luck!

    Karenanda, Yes maybe it is different for applicants outside of NCC or perhaps they did change it, or I am missing out on something ha. I think I will give admissions a call very soon to clarify things up. Do you think I should ask all my questions directly towards the nursing dept. or I can just ask admissions?


    -Thankyou!

    Russl, there is a dedicated nursing admissions counselor in admissions. I forget her name, but it's something like Mrs. Pereshevsky. I would ask to speak with her and she would definitely know. I just checked the website and I confirmed that students not yet attending NCC apply directly to admissions and current students apply to the nursing program. Here's the link. Sorry for any confusion.
