Integrated Nursing Pathway Application Information and Online Application

Integrated Nursing Pathway Application Information and Requirements

Application to the Integrated Nursing Pathway is available Mar. 1st (8 a.m.) to Mar. 31st (midnight), each year. The program starts in the fall of the same year of application. Please read the information below before preparing to apply. The online application is now closed.

All documents pertaining to an application must be received by CCA by Mar. 31st. The exception is the spring transcript which is due for the 2014 application by May 23rd.

Transcripts from all colleges and institutions attended (other than CCA) must be official transcripts - which means the student does not see or deliver them. They must be ordered as such and requested to be sent directly to CCA at the address below. Transcripts for courses in progress (at other institutions) at the time of application must be sent to CCA as soon as possible after grades have been posted. Note: Transcripts for any coursework done at other institutions at the 100 level and above must be submitted by Mar. 31st; no exceptions will be made. There is no time limit on these grades and they will factor into your cumulative GPA.

Please allow sufficient time for official transcripts to be mailed from the institution from which they are being sent. Transcripts should be requested before Mar. 1st, as it may take 2-3 weeks for transcripts to be processed after request. They may be requested as early as Jan. 1, and will be paired with your application once you apply. Indicate on the Transcript Credit Evaluation Form (see Apply & Register, Getting Started, #4 on the CCA website) that the credits should be applied to an AGS degree and that you are going to be applying to the INP program (in comment section of form). Be sure you have applied to CCA so transcripts can be applied to your degree.

All Official Transcripts and score reports should be sent to:

Community College of Aurora
Attn: Credentials Evaluator
16000 E CentreTech Pkwy
Aurora, CO  80011

If a student is accepted into the program, they will then be asked to complete CU's application form, pay CU's application fee of $65, and have their official transcripts sent to the College of Nursing as well. Students will be notified of where to send transcripts to CU once accepted. All students accepted into the program are automatically accepted to the CU CON.
Before progressing to CU and by January 31st during the second semester of the program at CCA, students will be expected to pay the following fees:

  • $350.00 - a non-refundable tuition deposit to reserve student's place in the traditional pathway program. This will be applied towards tuition, fees, and/or any other student debt during the first term of attendance at the College of Nursing;
  • $65.00  - a non-refundable fee required of each entering student for a background check;
  • $62.00  - a non-refundable fee required of each entering student for a drug screen (either paid to Health One or CU depending on location of student's residence).

Please note:

  • You must be a current Community College of Aurora student to apply to the INP program. If you are not a CCA student or have not attended CCA in the last 12 months, click here to apply to the college. In the section marked "Intended Program of Study," fill in AGS (Associate of General Studies).
