Getting Started

Getting Started

Students are admitted to the Nursing Program during the fall and spring semesters. The deadline to submit all application materials for admission to the fall class is the last working day of February. The deadline for the spring class is the last working day of September.

Please view the Admission Schedule and Deadlines page for current semester dates.

Meet with an Advisor

Students need to schedule an appointment with an advisor, especially if you have previous courses to review and establish whether more courses must be taken prior to applying to the Nursing Program. An advisor will also need to check your TSI/TASP scores, GPA, and Reading and Math TSI Assessment status.

Note: All nursing students need to be proficient in their anatomy and physiology. If it has been more than three years since you took this course, or if you feel you could benefit from a refresher, please consider taking an anatomy and physiology refresher course.​

Coursework Completed INSIDE the DCCCD

  • If the prerequisite and/or support coursework was taken within the Dallas County Community College District we do not require course descriptions of those courses. If the course is not the same course in the curriculum pattern, a course substitution must be requested.
  • If you are requesting to substitute a course that was taken within the DCCCD, this request must be done through the nursing office at Brookhaven College. Course substitutions MUST be approved PRIOR to applying to the Nursing Program. See deadline on Admission Schedule and Deadlines. Course descriptions must be submitted including required prerequisites and support coursework. Please provide photocopies of online or print catalog pages of course descriptions from the college’s catalog. Please do not highlight or mark the pages provided.

Note: When repeating a course for a better grade, the Grade Point Average (GPA) will only be calculated on the last same course number attempted.

Coursework Completed OUTSIDE of DCCCD

  • Course work from transfer nursing students requesting admission will be evaluated individually. Submit official transcripts and proof of accreditation from EVERY undergraduate college attended outside of the Dallas County Community College District to:
  • Brookhaven College
    Attention: Admissions Office
