New Admission Procedures
To promote diversity, equity, and inclusion of the student population, Nursing Faculty approved to use a blended combination of random selection and a multicriteria screening process as the selection method to accept nursing students.
Starting the term of the admission of the Spring 2023 cohort.
- All applicants who completed the Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, Microbiology, and English 1A with a GPA of 2.5 or better can apply. Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, and Microbiology with a grade less than a "C" (2.0) for each course and having more than one repetition of any one of the science courses are not eligible to apply.
- Use the multicriteria screening process to determine each applicant's merit points.
- Establish Applicants Pool.
- Establish Lottery Pool. Two methods to place applicants into the Lottery Pool:
- Determine a cut score from the multicriteria screening process. For example, if 70% is the cut score, all applicants who meet 70% of the cut score will be placed in the Lottery Pool. Or
- Select the top 250 applicants, and place them in the Lottery Pool
- Randomly select 100 to120 students from the Lottery Pool.
- Have these 100 to120 students take the California Community Colleges Chancellor's office required admission/readiness exam.

- Applicants who passed the required admission/readiness exam will be advanced to the Counseling Department for transcript verification.
- Applicants who do not complete the Counseling Department transcript verification process will be removed from the application list.
