Admission Information

Who Can Apply?

Enrolled second and third semester students from the community college ADN program are selected by their community college for admission to the Cal State LA Collaborative. Selection is based on academic achievement in the pre-requisite science and English courses in the ADN program, and overall college coursework. Specifically, the student must have a 3.0 GPA in the pre-requisite courses and in the nursing program. If there are more qualified students than there are available spaces, students may be selected via lottery for this program.
