The following requirements/materials are needed for a complete application. Admissions decisions will be made after each deadline, following a faculty review. All materials submitted become the property of the University of Colorado College of Nursing.
Applications are submitted through Nursing’s Centralized Application Service (NursingCAS).
Note: This program does have state restrictions on distance education. For a list of state restrictions, read our Nursing Certification Disclaimer.
Although it is not required, all applicants are encouraged to submit their application to NursingCAS 6 weeks prior to the deadlines listed, as it can take up to 4-6 weeks for NursingCAS to receive and verify applicant transcripts. Please do not wait on transcripts and references/recommendations to be received by NursingCAS before submitting your application. This will help to ensure that your application is reviewed in a timely manner.
Applicants should monitor their NursingCAS application portal daily after application submission for completion of tasks such as verification of transcripts. The University of Colorado College of Nursing will not provide application status updates. Notifications regarding your application will only be sent through the NursingCAS portal, and it is the applicant’s responsibility to check and complete necessary tasks if missing items are identified.
