    Yes, we had to take HESI in order for them to sign off on our paperwork. I passed...which was all I cared about. I think a few people didnt pass it, then they either had to take a Kaplan review course or retake in again this week.

    Newbie gathering info. Do you know what the required HESI pass rate is? Drexel requires a very high rate and withholds your degree and charges another $3000 for remediation until you pass at the required score..a colleague's wife was in that program and almost had a nervous breakdown preparing for the HESI. It sounds like HESI is part of the program at WCU but your degree does not depend on that one test. Congrats on completing the program and good luck with NCLEX! I am in the process of applying to programs. Jeff and WCU are at the top of my list.

    According the their website, West Chester University will not have a January class. They will have a class of 40 in May.

    I just had my interview at WCU on Jan 15th. She did say they want to only do one cohort per year from now on because its getting difficult for them to arrange clincals/sites for so many students at different times. She also expressed concern about reaching the goal of 40-45 students. Apparently a lot of people sending apps arent filling them out completely or sending the proper transcripts. They give first priority to students who sent the application correctly as a whole, and who have completed all the pre-reqs.

    Does anyone know if federal student loans would cover the cost of this program or do we need to seek private lenders? I also wanted to know if West chester offered any scholarships for this program?? I know that drexel offers their absn students nothing...just wondering if it was different at West Chester.

    I was told in the interview that if there were loans you were eligible for in undergrad, but didnt use, that you can use them for this program. She did say that there are scholarships but since there are so many students enrolled in the school that its hard to get a scholarship.

    Thanks Lefty Lou,
    Being able to finance the program was a concern for me, but it sounds like federal stafford loan covers the program for the most part. So I guess my only issue now is to get accepted!

    Has anyone heard if they were accepted yet or not? I was told I wouldnt hear anything until late Feb or early March. Did they tell you guys the same thing in the interview?

    I got an acceptance email this morning! Such a relief since this was the only program i applied to! I'm glad I came across this thread, I had always been searching for "West Chester University" with little to no results.

    Good luck to all that are waiting to hear back, I applied in December and had an interview mid-January.
