The application period for the nursing program is November 1 - February 1 each year. All CT-CCNP applicants must complete the online nursing program application and submit all related documentation to the Admissions Office at the College of First Choice by the February 1st deadline. The "College of First Choice" is the college that the applicant would most like to attend.
Applicants may select a 2nd choice college at the initial time of application which will eliminate the necessity to apply to more than one college. An applicant should only list the college(s) to which s/he would be willing to commute.
Late applications and transcripts will not be accepted.
Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available online on November 1, 2015.
