      • RN applicants should choose Nursing: Registered Nurse Seeking Bachelor of Science in Nursing (R.N. to B.S.N.)
      • Dual enrollment applicants should choose Nursing: Dual Enrollment (the system will display your program option as Aims, Front Range or Other depending on your Academic History information).

    • The application fee process will appear once you complete all application questions and submit the application.

    • Make sure to have official transcripts sent to UNC for all previously earned college credit. UNC admissions will use your submitted transcripts to determine credit towards overall degree completion.
