SHSU Fall 2018- The Woodlands

  1. I didn't see a thread for the Fall 2018 applicants to Sam Houston State University, so I thought I'd start one. This year, the entire program will be housed in The Woodlands, TX. The application period opened on March 1 and closes May 1. Is anyone else out there applying?

    I figured I'd move over here, lol! I've got an appointment with the Woodlands Lady on Monday to see if I can possibly even jump through all of the hoops in time for the May 1st deadline. If I could go there, it would be so much more convenient for me than UT HSC. Is there a Spring start at all, or just every fall?

    There's a spring and a fall start. So if you miss it this time, you have another shot just a few months later. I live in The Woodlands, so this is a much better commute anyway.

    That's great that they have a Spring start as well. I'll have to see how things work out after speaking with the advisor. I live in Spring right off of 99 so the Woodlands is easier for me, also. I did worry about going to the Med Center and that's one of the major complaints in the reviews of UT HSC is that it's far too easy to be late to class/clinicals for a commuter. ANyway, thanks for your help and for starting this thread!

    I'm also applying for Fall 2018, I applied for the Spring 2018 but I was denied. So this will be my second time applying to SHSU's Nursing Program.

    Does anyone know who makes the acceptance/denial decisions?
    I'm in a weird situation.. I got accepted to Lamar University's nursing program on the condition that I compelete 2 of their nursing courses over the summer down in Beaumont. The courses start on June 4th but we don't hear back from Sam Houston until at least June 15th so I could end up wasting money & time taking classes at Lamar if I do end up getting into Sam. Maybe I could ask someone to let me know the decision early? Not sure if that is possible though...

    I was told that SHSU acceptances could go out as early as June 4th, but that we'd know for sure by June 15th. Why don't you make a pre-nursing appointment w/ Joanna Blythe at the Woodlands campus? You can schedule those online.

    I'm exactly sure who makes the decision but I would recommend that you call and see. In the case that SHSU is not able to give you a early decision I would recommend that you take those two courses with Lamar then check to see if SHSU's School of Nursing will accept them. If so you will still be able to join SHSU's Nursing School if accepted yet you will not have to retake those two courses at Sam. What were you stats if you don't mind me asking?
