    My Valencia Application still says "Incomplete". I called both the business office and the Health Sciences Department yesterday and I still don't have confirmation that my application was received. What should I do?
    Sorry, I'm a little confused, what do you mean by it says "incomplete?" When I go to the health sciences application all it says is application submitted. I'm not sure if I need to be looking somewhere else or if this is what you mean.

    If this is what you mean, I'd march into the office and raise hell. I mean, not really bc you catch more flies with honey, blah blah blah. But they're screwing with your future career so it definitely requires a stern talking to someone. I really hope you get it figured out!

    Yes, where it should say "submitted" it says incomplete. "Please choose your payment option". I paid May 4th, transaction posted to my checking account May 5th. I stood in the health science office for over an hour on Monday and was told that it would take 24 hours for my status to be updated, and that there was a technical difficulty. I called again yesterday and left a message for health sciences. Then called the business office again and they've done all that they can. Today I emailed the department and I also called atlas technical support myself. Should I go into the advising office again?

    I'm just afraid my application will slip through the cracks without anyone noticing until it's too late to even be considered for the program. <\3

    Yes, I'd print out your bank info showing it posted, as well as explain what you were told by the business office. I'd rather be seen as a bit of a nuisance than let my application fall through the cracks. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this at an already stressful time! Hope you get some answers!!

    Thanks ajr06d. I spoke with the dept. office manager and she said she'd look into it tomorrow. I'm hopeful it will all be resolved soon.

    Update: as I understand, the health sciences office staff put my application through manually because the atlas system wouldn't allow them to submit it for some reason. Either way, I was assured that it's definitely there despite Atlas saying it's not.
    Thank God!

    Now I can anxiously sit back and wait for mid-June like the rest of you!

    Is this the only program you guys have applied to? I applied to UCF's traditional program in Feb-- no such luck. I knew my stats weren't quite as competitive as they needed to be for it then but I figured I'd give it a shot. The concurrent is the program I've had my eyes on since I began working on my prereqs. I also applied to the traditional nursing program at Valencia last week.

    Here are my stats for any future applicants who might be curious:
    TEAS: 86.7
    Cumulative GPA (VCC & UCF): 3.71
    Science prereq: 3.5
    Non-science prereq: 4.0

    VC/UCF is the only program I applied to. I was going to try SSC/UCF but had an issue with my AP English scores not making it in time, so I didn't even bother bringing my application to SSC campus. I'm looking into WGU as well, their program is online, and the clinicals take place in Daytona. I feel like it doesn't hurt to have one more option.

    Last year's applicants got acceptance letters by June 16th. I keep wondering what to do between now and around then to keep myself occupied. I have no chill.

    Sooooooooooooooooo looooooonnnngggggggggg. I have no clue what to do if i dont get accepted lol

    So I was just searching around on atlas on Valencia and it looks like they pulled all of the degree audits already, says for VCC my overall GPA is. 3.675 since they only counted the preqs but I should have a 3.6 science GPA and other prequest as a 3.65. I also received a teas of 83.3 which is really low compared to a lot of people so I hope that doesn't defer me. Also applied to SSC but I was missing that 1 credit nutrition class so that puts me at the very bottom of the pot.

    BUT! Reading from previous forums, it seems like if someone got accepted into SSC and Valencia if they get accepted into SSC their name gets taken out for the kids at Valencia since most of them accept the same. If anyone knows if this is true or not please let me know hecusse if so if u look at the statistics online, I think for their were 129 applicants with like 70 accepted (sorry I'm typing on my phone and too lazy to switch tabs lol) and for Valencia 126 applicants with 47 accepted which means their were only like 50 applicants left over and 47 of those 50 that didn't get accepted into SSC is at Valencia if that is the way the system works. So don't get your hopes down to fast I'm kinda upset just because of my TEAS but I'm praying for the best.

    Lastly, what's WGU? Any information you can give on that incase this doesn't work out lol.

    xoRNlife it looks like we have similar scores & GPA.

    If my TEAS score was higher than 83.3, I wouldn't feel so worried. I got rejected from UCF's traditional nursing program, so I am praying that I get accepted into this one. I thought 83.3 was a solid Teas score but compared to others it is a lot lower.... that is honestly all that I am worried about.

    Do any of you guys have back up plans IF things go south and aren't accepted? Just out of curiosity
