Accepted students will need to pay their enrollment deposit ($200 commuter, $300 resident) by May 15 for Fall and December 15 for Spring. Any open class spaces will be offered to students on a waitlist after the October 1 deadline.
Not at this time. You may apply for future semesters, if interested.
Candidates must have a minimum 3.0 overall GPA and 3.0 “Nursing classes” GPA in order to be accepted to the Nursing program. Candidates who do not meet the minimum GPA requirements will not be offered admission to Nursing program at Russell Sage College.
Please keep in mind that an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher does not guarantee admission to the program. Many factors are considered when applications are reviewed.
- all official transcripts from previous institutions attended (high school transcripts are not needed if you have completed at least 30 college credits)
- one (1) letter of recommendation.
- one (1) personal statement.
- one (1) Nursing Support Course Form.
- completed FAFSA forms (Russell Sage College 002810) that have been received by the Russell Sage College by the deadline. Please call Student Services at 518-244-2201 to confirm reception of documents.
The Nursing program at Russell Sage College does not require that prerequisite courses be taken prior to admittance. However, there are courses a student will need to successfully complete prior to being granted permission to register for upper-level nursing courses. Transfer credit for prerequisite coursework that has been taken at other institutions will honored according to Russell Sage College Transfer Equivalency Policy. Please review our Transfer Credit Policy for more information.
Please review our Nursing Program Guide to see the Nursing (B.S.) degree requirements. This page is an excellent resource for students who would like to estimate how long it would take to complete the Nursing program.
Transcript evaluation and the awarding of credits from previous institutions takes place once a student is accepted. Full evaluations will not be available for students who have not been accepted to the program. For information about prerequisite course transfer please consult our Nursing Program Guide.
It is highly advised that you have received grades of 3.0-4.0 on prerequisite coursework. It will drastically improve the possibility of admission to the program.
For questions about specific courses (not full transcript evaluation), please contact our registrar office at 518-292-1787.
Unfortunately, we are unable to offer admission to all nursing candidates. Admission decisions for a particular semester are final and special circumstances will not be considered.
Students who meet the 3.0 GPA requirement may apply the next consecutive semester.
Students who do not meet the 3.0 GPA requirement may re-apply to the program after one calendar year has passed. In order to improve the chances of being admitted to the program, it is suggested that coursework be taken at other institutions to raise overall and science GPAs. It is highly suggested that appointments to meet with the Office of Admission or Nursing faculty be scheduled only after successfully improving GPAs at other institutions.
