When should I expect to hear a decision on my application?
Spring applicants to the Sacramento VANAP program will be notified in early December. Fall Sacramento VANAP applicants will be notified in early April.
What is the criteria for admission as a transfer student?
We look for students to have at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and be in good standing at their current institution. We also look for at least 30 semester or 45 quarter units of complete college-level work. In addition, we recommend Nursing applicants have the following courses completed or in progress at the time of application: Anatomy (with lab), Physiology (with lab), Microbiology (with lab), and Psychology (Intro to Sociology and Statistics are highly recommended as well).
I applied in a previous term. What’s the process for reapplication?
To re-apply, you will need to submit a new application by the priority application deadline of your intended entry term. If you have taken additional coursework since last applying, we will need updated unofficial transcripts for those institutions.
Do you require a letter of recommendation?
Letters of recommendation are not accepted.
Do you need the TEAs test?
USF does not require the TEAs test as part of the application process.
How should I send you my transcripts?
At this time we are only requesting unofficial transcripts. If you are accepted into the program, at that time we will request official transcripts. Within the USF transfer application go to institutions attended and select colleges attended. From here you will upload copies of your unofficial transcript.
Do I need to submit my high school transcripts?
No, we just ask that you list your high school in the Institution Attended section.
I can’t find the Sacramento nursing program?
Within the application go to program information, select the term you are applying for, click what is your intended major, and select Nursing (Veteran’s Affairs Partnership Program Sacramento).
Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive for transfer nursing, we highly encourage you to email your specific questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. An admission representative will be in touch as quickly as possible.
Do you offer individual appointments for prospective nursing transfer students?
Yes, you can schedule an appointment with a Sacramento admission advisor by clicking here. Depending on the session, appointments might not be available, so we encourage you to attend a Nursing Information Session!
Do you accept second degree students?
Yes, but priority goes to students seeking their first degree.
Do I have to be a veteran or have military experience to be accepted into the Sacramento Nursing program?
No, we accept students with or without military experience.
