Health Sciences Application Info

Selective Health Sciences and Nursing Application

Welcome to the application site for Vincennes University’s selective Health Sciences and Nursing Programs. Admission is competitive for most programs and compliance with all criteria does not guarantee acceptance to the selected program. We encourage applicants to visit the VU catalog at www.vinu.edu/catalog or our website at www.vinu.edu/healthcareers to view admission criteria and program curriculum.

Please note that some programs have an extended application review process. The majority of programs review applications October through June with notifications emailed at various times. If you are applying for the AS Nursing or Practical Nursing Program please visit www.vinu.edu/nursing for review time frames and application deadlines.

Step 1: Complete a Vincennes University application for admission. Your acceptance to Vincennes University is separate from admission to the College of Health Science and Human Performance.

Step 2: Submit high school (or GED) transcript. High School transcripts may be sent to vuadmit@vinu.edu. Official college transcripts, including transcripts for dual credit courses, must be on file. College transcripts may be sent electronically to records@vinu.edu.

Step 3: If you do not have college transcripts with college credit for English Composition and College Algebra (or higher-level math) you will need test scores on file. Appropriate test scores include Accuplacer, SAT, and/or ACT.

Next Steps
If you are a new applicant to VU (current high school student/transfer student) or had to reapply to VU because you are not currently enrolled, your completed information will be sent to the College of Health Sciences and Human Performance for evaluation. New applicants to VU do not have to submit a secondary application; however, you are encouraged to do so. All Pharmacy Technology students are required to submit a secondary application.

If you are currently enrolled in classes at VU, you will need to submit a secondary application to the College of Health Sciences and Human Performance in order to initiate review.

Applicants may only apply for one program. Please do not submit multiple applications for different programs.

Jasper Nursing applicants should contact the VUJC Nursing Department at rsinclair@vinu.edu to inquire about the application process. Secondary applications are required at Jasper for both current students and new applicants to the University.

NOTICE

Our programs will send official communications to students using the email address you have provided on the application form. It is important that you continue to use this email address or notify our office of any change.

Since email has been adopted as a primary mechanism for sending official communications to students, students must check email regularly in order to read important messages and notifications. Certain communications may be time-sensitive. Failure to read official university communications sent to the student does not absolve students from knowing and complying with the content of those official communications. Students must also ensure that there is sufficient space in their e-mail inboxes to allow email to be delivered and received. Be sure that emails are not being sent to your junk mail/SPAM.
