Apply to the Program

Online applications are accepted two times a year: February 1-15 for classes beginning fall semester (August) or July 1-15 for classes beginning in the spring semester (January). Admission to the Nursing Program is competitive, and students must be in satisfactory academic standing with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. 

There are two primary avenues for acceptance into the nursing program:  General Nursing or Advanced Placement. General Nursing is for applicants needing all four semesters of the nursing program. Advanced Placement Applicants are students who are either LPNs or have successfully completed at least 2 semesters of a nursing program and are seeking to transfer. See the Nursing Application Guide and Program Student Handbook link (below) for more information.

General Nursing Application Process: 

Submit a Degree Seeking College Application to the College at least 2-3 weeks prior to the nursing application deadline.

Transfer students are required to contact the pre-nursing advisor as part of the admission process.  Call 307.778.1214.  

Average Cumulative GPA is determined by taking the cumulative GPA from each transcript adding them together and dividing by the number of transcripts. (3 transcripts, 2.5, 3.0, 2.5 = 2.7 cumulative GPA). ONLY official transcripts processed through LCCC are accepted for consideration. Unofficial transcripts are no longer accepted. 

Overall score must be at least 65.6 or higher and the reading score must be at least a 72.4 or higher. The cost for this exam is $35.00.

 Application Evaluation & Scoring

No points are awarded, but the application will only be considered if ALL of the following are met:

See General Nursing Application Process above.

For Advanced Placement Applicants: 

See Admission Requirements for Advanced Placement Students above. 

Wyoming Resident (4 points) 

The Admission Application for LCCC is used to establish residency verification. If your residency status changed since applying to LCCC, contact the Student Hub at 307.778.1265 and ask to complete the Change of Application for Residency Reclassification Form. 

General Education Courses: (points vary - See the Estimated Points Worksheet)

Nursing prerequisite, general education and UW ReNEW courses (points vary depending on the grade) 

Refer to the Estimated Points Worksheet for courses and to determine points. 

Completing only the prerequisite courses with the minimum “C” requirement typically will not provide an applicant with enough points to be competitive for consideration for admission to the nursing program. Most applicants accepted into the nursing program have completed the majority of the general education requirements with an average grade of “B” or higher. 

Applications are reviewed by the application committee after the submission deadline. Applications that are incomplete, not submitted online through the application portal on the nursing program’s website or submitted past the application deadline will not be considered. Applicants may submit up to 3 application submissions, additional submissions may not be considered.
