Admission Process

Labouré College of Healthcare accepts students three semesters per year*^, with start dates in Spring (January), Summer (May), and Fall (September).
*Some programs have limited start dates. 
^Each semester has a Session I and Session II. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program accepts students in both Session I and Session II, giving that program six acceptance/start dates per year.

The admissions process at Labouré College of Healthcare operates on a rolling basis for all programs. Rolling admissions means that there are no final deadlines to apply; rather, applications are reviewed as they become complete, and until a program is filled. Programs with limited capacity can fill up quickly. In the event that a program is filled for a particular semester, the completed application will automatically be considered for the next available semester.

Students who apply, but do not complete their application packet by submitting all required documentation for a given semester will be given the choice to be rolled over and assessed for the next available semester, or withdraw their application from the college if their original application semester becomes full.

Admissions Process for the Associate of Science in Nursing Program

Labouré College of Healthcare’s Associate of Science in Nursing program has limited capacity and historically a large number of applicants. Because this is a limited capacity program, not all applicants who meet the minimum criteria will be offered acceptance to the program. Offers of acceptance will be made to qualified candidates after consideration of both the minimum criteria for admission and the candidate’s overall academic history and progress.

Candidates who submit a completed application packet prior to the Priority Date will be reviewed first and sent a decision beginning on the admissions decision release dates. Decisions will be sent based on when a student's completed application packet was submitted. Applications are reviewed on a date of completion basis; if the semester of intent is filled, then the application will automatically be reviewed for the following semester.

The Department of Admissions will extend acceptance offers to qualified candidates until the program has been filled for a particular semester. Qualified candidates who are not initially offered acceptance will be automatically reviewed for the following semester.
