Step 4

Applicants are given approximately 45 minutes to complete the remote essay prompt. This step is to be completed on the same day as the ATI TEAS; however, it may be scheduled separately if ATI TEAS, ACT, or SAT scores have been officially submitted.

Step 5

Official high school transcript from an accredited high school, official GED, and/or Home Study certificate or transcript.

*Potential applicants from foreign, non-English speaking countries must provide a translated and certified document that is the equivalent of a U.S. high school diploma in order to satisfy this step (Please Eligible Non-US Citizen Application Process).*

If you currently hold on the following healthcare certification, please submit an unofficial documentation to [email protected]

International high school transcripts must be evaluated and reviewed for eligibility as part of the admission process.  The evaluation is not a guarantee of admission.  Applicants must have high school transcripts evaluated and certified by The National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member organization, which will assess for a fee.  The certifying organization's report must be sent directly to Platt College at 5660 Greenwood Plaza Blvd. Greenwood Village, CO 80111 or emailed directly to the College. For applicants who are unable or unwilling to provide this translated and certified documentation, only an official copy of a GED will be used to satisfy the requirement for an official high school transcript.  Any fees related to this requirement are to be paid by the applicant.

*Possess a Home Study certificate or transcript from a Home Study program that is equivalent to high school level and recognized by your home state, and be beyond the age of compulsory attendance in that state

**According to Policy 02:14:00 Transfer Credit, students must be accepted into the BSN program at Platt College before transfer credit is evaluated. Official transcripts are evaluated and transfer credit is reviewed by the Registrar.  Unofficial transcripts may be used for advising and course selection but are not acceptable for transfer of credit.  As the Registrar reviews the official transcript, the student may be asked to provide the course description(s) from the catalog under which he/she was enrolled.

After the student has completed all college and program admission requirements, the student’s application file will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.  Acceptance is not automatic and continuation after admission is not guaranteed. Acceptance into the BSN program is contingent upon the completion and approval of a complete 7 year criminal background check (Please use Policy 03:06:00 Background Checks for Students for reference). Student progress is continually evaluated.
