    Hey, so I visited the school on Monday. I met one of my cousin's friends in Puerto Rico and she took me straight to the school and to the nursing department. From there they told me that I needed to go to the admissions office first.When I got there I was expected the phones to be ringing off the hook since I never get through when I call but not one phone rang while I was in there smh. Anyways the lady pulled my application up on the computer and once she saw that I had applied for August, she told me that they have not started admitting people fo June, July, and Aug. She said that they were still working on that current trimester and that they won't start on the other apps until May. She told me to resend my transcript in May once I have graduated with my bachelors so that I wouldn't have to take any gen eds and I could automatically enter the accelerated nursing program. So basically I couldn't get anything done because it's too early.
    Edibie I would go down to the International Relations office and speak to "E" and he should be able to help you. That makes no sense. I got accepted in Jan or Feb. "E" will walk you up to the right people and take care of it.

    I don't know the exact name of the office but when you walk into the main building where addmissions and financial aid and everything else is you are actually on the 3rd floor. If you go to the very bottom where the cafeteria is, the student lounge, book store, chapel (it's a Christian Uni) etc then you are on the 1st floor. The office where "E" works is next to the ROTC (Army, Navy, Airforce, Marines) office and 2 doors down from the book store (which is pointless - buy your books online).

    But I am sure "E" can help you.

    Thanks Isis. I thought I had the PDF at one point but I checked and could not find it.. I actually prefer to study from an actual book and my Saunders is so marked up. More marked up then any other book I have ever owned.

    But could you send it to me if you don't mind? I hope school is going well. I bet you are counting the weeks until it is over.

    I don't know what "E"s capacities are these days. He works with international students and by the way since we are from the States we are considered International. Quite silly. I'll message you his email. I only have his email.

    How long ago did you apply?

    That was my biggest issue was to just get them to accept me so I could move on with plans. I had a client and one of her companies clients was the entire 13 (or 11?) campuses of Interamericana de Puerto Rico. So she spoke with her college who got intouch with her contact at the main campus and I had my acceptance letter within a week. But really it is not hard to get accepted but I know how you feel.

    I'll message you his email.

    Thank you so much for the email.I applied like a month ago and i haven't heard from them ever since.

    I have another question for you, do you happen to know how much does a 13 hours trimester costs after the school fees? It`s hard to get any information from their website since it`s all in spanish.


    Thank you again

    I really don't remember. I graduated May 2012. I don't think they raised the rates since the economy is not so good. I remember paying about 3,300 a trimester with lab fees. You can get financial aid but basically it will cover the tuition and that is it.

    Can you email me his address as well? I also call and they told me that they will start looking at the applications until April or may.. Honestly that is a short notice to make plans to move from the states to start school in August ! Can you help me with his email address? (E)

    Thank you,

    Thank you,
    You have mail!!

    Yeah that is weird they say April or May. Most universities let you know around Feb or March for a fall start date. Certainly doesn't give a lot of time. And if you are accepted by other schools they usualy give a window of time to respond before you loose your spot.

    Some of you guys should use that one. You have been accepted by another university and you have until March 31 until you loose your spot, or something like that. In PR they still may not give a rats butt, but it is worth a try.

    Hi, everyone! I have read through both threads over the last few days and I'd just like to thank you for being so helpful and putting so much good info out there. I have even found it annoying when the same general questions are asked over, and over, and over... so I will try to avoid that

    If this post is kinda long it's just me trying to explain the details. I put my actual question in bold italics because I tend to throw a lot of explaining around them and they get kinda lost. I should tell you that right now I'm working as an au pair in The Netherlands.

    In advance.... THANK YOU. Getting these answers will really facilitate my move. Thank you.

    I would love to start at la Inter in November. I looked at the school's schedule of classes and the set of the first nursing classes are given at this time. Also, through the threads I've learned that with the November start date you can begin the nursing program and then take the summer courses and be caught up with the August start date classes. I have learned that a student can start the accelerated program if they have most of the generals done, not just if they have a degree. Designer-mommy talked about this with her husband, for example, and there have been other comments on it. I have college bio, english, psych, and some other general ed classes. I would like to start taking the rest of the generals like History of PR, Christian faith, and whatever else I can online now, so that I can start the program and have it only take 2 years. Can someone from la Inter PLEASE give me a break down of the required gen ed classes? This would be a HUGE help to me. Once again, PLEASE!!! I'm begging you, haha. I have searched high and low for it on the school's website with no luck so far.

    So, like I said I am currently living abroad... I'm working as an au pair in The Netherlands right now. This really complicates working with the school because not only will I have to deal with their already s...l...o...w response time, I have to coordinate that with a large time difference and even longer shipping times for mail. Should I have my mail from the school sent to me in Europe or send it to my parents house in Colorado and enlist their help in informing me of what the school sends?

    My plan is to take English 2 online from my community college in Colorado over the summer semester. Maybe sociology too, as I have seen that that is a requirement (but maybe for UMET?). And others if I believe they will definitely transfer. Wondering about a math class...? (Tips on which math I should take to have it accepted in transfer? What did you take?) *This is why I'm desperately wanting that outline of general ed classes* Then take the history, religion, and whatever else I need online through La Inter in the Aug-Oct block. I know the Spanish classes have to be taken on campus and I'd like to do that while in the nursing program. I am also planning on taking an intensive Spanish course over the summer here to improve my skills. I am studying Spanish a little every day (as it is my personal goal to become fluent) and hoping that I will be able to test out of Spanish 1 or possibly also Spanish 2 so that I wont have to take those.. would they allow this? I saw someone post about it but they were very vague and they were the only one I have seen talk about it.

    I really need some advice on what to do to get registered and all this accomplished. I will apply online tomorrow (I feel like if I apply on a weekday when they are in the office they are more likely to take action..). Then I need to send them everything, blahblahblah... What I need advice on is if I will need to go to the school earlier than about 2 weeks before (when I hope to start) November. I have a feeling I will need to go to the school before I can register to take the Aug-Oct online classes. I'd like to avoid it because it's veryyy expensive for me, coming from Europe. I would have to take a few days out of my visit home to Colorado to go. Completely willing to, but like I said I would prefer to do everything online. Will they let me register for Aug-Oct classes online, without coming to the school in person? If they use COMPASS placement testing I could just have my CC send my placement test scores. I did that when I moved to Washington and the college was more than happy to accept these without hesitation. I know it may be a different story in PR. How many days would I need to allow myself in PR to get myself registered for school? I dont plan on securing housing while I'm there, just visiting the neighborhoods to get an idea. Will I be able to get my degree plan of me starting the nursing core in November agreed upon with the school ahead of time? This is very important to me. I'm not going to move there until next Aug if I can't make sure my classes will only be 2 years. I can't move in Aug because I have an obligation to the family I work for in The Netherlands. I am confident I can finish enough of the gen ed classes up to be in the accelerated program, but I just need to verify this stuff with the school so I know I should book a flight down there from Denver at the same time I am in Colorado late July. I'd like to agree with the nursing dept or whoever (???) that that will be my schedule, then when I visit in July, register for those classes in November too. If I can... Did La Inter send you a degree outline/complete class schedule for you when you were accpted in to the nursing program?
    How can I get confirmation of my schedule for starting in November??
    I dont want to invest all my money in moving there only to find out they arent going to let me register for the accelerated program with a start date in November.

    THANK YOU, again. To the awesome people who have helped answer so many question and who have now graduated, I promise I will relieve you from your duties on this forum if I get this accomplished.. right now you're the only ones that can help me make this move! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
