Advising/Info Sessions

If you are interested in learning more about admission criteria, the application process, course requirements and important dates, please attend one of our Information Sessions. These sessions are offered monthly for each program track. The information provided at these sessions is useful for those students who want to learn more about the academic programs offered by the School of Nursing before applying to Oakland University.

Sessions begin promptly at the published start time and last approximately one hour. Information sessions are conducted in group format and are facilitated by the School of Nursing academic adviser for the program. At this session, you will learn about the Oakland University admission criteria and process, School of Nursing admission criteria and process, and program overview of the curriculum. Individual questions will be answered at the end of the session if time remains. Transcripts can only be evaluated after a student has been officially admitted to Oakland University so transcripts will not be evaluated at these sessions.

To apply to Oakland University, log on to www.oakland.edu/apply.

Please read over the information on the website prior to attending.
