Hi! Just wanted to start a thread about this topic. I am new to this CEP program at the Maricopa colleges in Arizona. What is considered a competitive score? I think they changed the point system in the pass. In the pass it was based on a possible score of 25. Now it’s out of 100. So the point system went up significantly. With the new point system what is considered a competitive score? I would like to try and get in through ASU.

Hi,

I recently got accepted for PVCC/ASU with the new rubric. I personally had an 83.3 for points. I was told to aim for over 80. I believe from what I’ve heard, the lowest score taken was a 79-80c but maybe only 1-2 people got in with that number.

Thank you for your input. I added my points myself and I stand at a 81.73. So hopefully I have a chance to get it first round, you think it’s competitive enough? I am going to apply with MCC and ASU.

With the new rubric, a score of over 80 is pretty much mandatory. A few people may get in with scores lower than that, but on the whole over 80 is required, and obviously the more over 80 the better.

With the CEP program, you will need to meet the minimum GPA for the University you are hoping to partner with. I don't know what that is for ASU, but let's assume it's 3.5. If your GPA is above 3.5, then you're set.

What I mean by that is, it is NOT the university the accepts you, it is the community college. In your case, if you get accepted by MCC, you will automatically get accepted by ASU if your GPA is high enough. Now, technically your CEP application wouldn't have been approved if your GPA was below the minimum for ASU, so I can only assume it meets or exceeds the GPA cut-off for ASU. However, admin errors can happen.

Put it this way - if you get into MCC, you are guaranteed a place in ASU. However, if you don't get into MCC, then you won't be accepted by ASU because you have to be enrolled in a CC to be accepted into the University CEP program. Hope that makes sense.

LMK f you have any other questions -

Yes, it makes total sense now! I have a GPA if 3.7 for ASU. Do you know if the maricopa colleges only accept CEP applications starting on December 1- January 31 only for summer 2020 start date? I know for the regular nursing they accept applications year round. I plan to see an advisor tomorrow since they only have specific hours for advisement. (Any and all info I can get the better)

Hi Candidate1 -

Your GPA of 3.7 is plenty to get into ASU. I'm almost certain their GPA requirement was 3.5 and above. Therefore, if you get accepted by MCC, you're definitely in at ASU.

I know the process can be confusing! As soon as you can, submit your nursing application for the traditional program. Everybody has to do that, CEP students included. Once you have all the additional co/pre-reqs done you can submit your CEP application too. Some people submit everything together, other people submit their traditional application as soon as they can, then start on the additional classes needed for the CEP, and then submit the CEP application once they've completed those classes.

Not sure where you are in the process, but it sounds as if you're all set with all the classes. Obviously your nursing advisor will (or should) go over your transcripts to be sure.  

As far as I'm aware, they accept CEP applications year round too. There are 2 cut-off dates per year.. I can't remember exactly when they are though.

Hopefully you'll get accepted into the CEP, but if for any reason you don't - remember that your traditional application is still winding through the system, and you just need to reapply for the CEP again. Technically, you can keep doing that until either you get a place on the CEP or enough time has passed that you'll get a place on the traditional program. If that doesn't make sense, I can explain in more detail (just ask).

If you recall the flow of classes for the traditional program, it is set up so that you have a bunch of pre-reqs, and then you can take the co-reqs during your nursing program. The reason you have to have all those co-reqs done BEFORE you can apply for the CEP is that you'll have your university classes going on, and simply won't have time to take them! One good thing is, if for some reason you don't get on the CEP (and I'm sure you will, so this is kinda irrelevant, LOL), but at least then your co-reqs are done so you'll have more free time!

Once you get accepted onto the CEP though, I definitely suggest you start on all the paperwork and get everything squared away ASAP. There's a ton of things to be done, and failure to do them in time can cause waves.

HTH!

Okay great. Thank you for all the information I appreciate it greatly! I will be seeing an advisor tomorrow since MCC has only certain days to see them.   Hopefully they tell me good news. 😬

So beginning of this week I finally got myself on the traditional waitlist for maricopa nursing. Not the college I wanted to be as my first choice but they told me I could change it later. (It was a lonnng process and ended up driving to two different campus and two different advisors telling me two different things) I was unable to turn in my application for the CEP program they only accept it during the end of the year in December and again April/May of the following year. So planning to take care of my CEP application come December. 

With all the running around and frustration I didn’t ask if I needed to attend a CEP info session?

Best of luck - keep on top of your application and attend one of the info sessions - they probably will go over stuff you already know but it was, so I assume it still is, mandatory to attend. I'd suggest spending the next months brushing up on all your A&P, start learning medical terminology / med names for diseases etc, and basic medications.

Keep us posted!
