When will I receive my admission decision?
Admission decision release dates can be found here.
I want to make sure my application is complete. How can I check that?
Your Application Status Portal Page is the most up-to-date reflection of your application status. Any application materials that our office is still missing will show up in your “Application Checklist” at the bottom of the page. If an application item is still listed as “Awaiting Material” in your checklist, we have not received that item or it is still being processed.
Please keep in mind that if you submit application materials within one week of the priority deadline, it may take up to one month for those materials to be processed and added to your account. If you submit materials in this time frame, we ask that you look to your Status Portal Page to see when those materials have been processed. We encourage all applicants to submit the online application and other required application materials early, as this helps ensure that your application is complete by the priority deadline.
How do I submit my application?
You will need to click the “Submit” button to submit your application. If the “Submit” button is greyed out and you are unable to click on it, you still need to complete one or more required items on the application.
How do I pay my application fee?
Once you have submitted your application, you will be able to pay your application fee within your Application Status Portal Page.
How long should my resume be and what information should I include?
Your resume should be one to three pages in length, and it should include your education, employment, leadership roles, any community services you've completed, any certifications you have earned, any specialized skills you may have, and any other relevant information.
How do I submit my statement of purpose and resume?
Resumes can be uploaded to the application portal upon submission of the application for admission. The optional statement of purpose will also appear on the application portal following submission of the application.
How do I submit my recommendations?
Recommendations are not required for students applying to the pre-licensure programs. Contact information for three recommenders is required of students applying to the MSN, DNP or CRNA programs. The School of Nursing will reach out individually to those individuals directly.
Are test scores a required part of the application for admission?
Effective for the 2021 application cycle, applicants are no longer required to submit standardized test scores for the Distance ABSN, MN, MN+MSN, MSN, DNP or CRNA applications. BSN Transfer students will still be required to submit standardized test scores.
Can I submit my transcripts electronically?
The School of Nursing does accept electronic transcripts from the following services:
All electronic transcripts need to be sent to email@example.com. You will need to follow up to make sure that any transcript sent electronically was received by our office.
I have international transcripts; how do I submit those?
If you attended a college or university outside of the United States, you will need to have that transcript evaluated. All international transcripts with non-nursing coursework will need to be evaluated by World Education Services (WES), and all international transcripts with nursing coursework will need to be evaluated by CGFNS International. Those transcripts will be considered received when our office receives an official transcript evaluation from WES or CGFNS. We cannot accept transcript evaluations from any other transcript evaluation services.
If your international coursework was completed as a part of a study abroad program coordinated through your school in the US, you may not need to have that transcript evaluated. Please contact your Admission Advisor with questions about study abroad transcripts.
How do I submit my official transcripts?
To complete your application, you will need to submit official transcripts from all colleges and universities you've attended. If you attended a college while still enrolled in high school, that official transcript is required as part of your application. If you attended a college or university and withdrew from all of your courses, that official transcript is still required to complete your application. Official transcripts should be mailed to:
Emory University School of Nursing
Office of Enrollment and Student Affairs
1520 Clifton Rd. NE
Atlanta, GA 30322
Transcripts sent electronically should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
As is true of all application materials, official transcripts sent to Emory College rather than the School of Nursing will not be forwarded to the School of Nursing. Transcripts sent to the incorrect address will need to be resent to the correct address.
I forgot my username and/or password for my application. What do I do?
If at any point you forget your password or user ID, do not create a second account/application. Once you've created an account, your user ID and password for the application will be emailed to you. Remember that the user ID and password are both case and space sensitive. For this reason, we recommend that you do not copy and paste either the user ID or password. If you have correctly typed both the user ID and password and are still unable to log into your application, please call our office for additional assistance. Information entered on separate applications cannot be combined or transferred to a second application.
