I am looking at getting into OLOL after a "failure" (needed a C or better got a C-) at another program about 3 years ago. I went to talk to an adviser at CCC about my pre-reqs and getting into the program for spring 2018. She advised me that with a failure at another school I was no eligible to apply to the program. I have had numerous other people who graduated from OLOL tell me this is not true. Does anyone know the policy on this? I have a 3.0 GPA and almost all my pre-reqs completed.

That's not true at all, you can absolutely still apply and get accepted into the program. They may question your grade the first time around, but it's not an automatic decline. Definitely apply, it's a terrific program!

My friend failed out of another nursing program in the tri state and she applied to Lourdes without transferring her previous programs transcript to Lourdes. It was basically "safe" for her because Lourdes didn't know. And from there, she was admitted.

I was thinking about doing this. I'm just wondering if they actually look into what other schools you have attended. By now it's been almost 5 years since my previous failure so it would be nice to start over new. The other school I attended said they have ways of finding out, but I skipped putting one transcript in and they never said anything.

With online transcripts and the ability to search financial aid online the odds of getting caught now are significantly higher than 5-10 years ago
