You will be required to submit the following documentation/information with your application to the Accelerated BSN Nursing Program or RN to BSN (online) program. Please gather your documentation prior to starting the application. We estimate it will take you approximately 20 minutes to complete this application.

  2. Proof of Delaware Residency (i.e. DE driver’s license information)
  3. Unofficial/official copies of transcripts from all post-secondary schools you have attended (you will upload as a PDF during the application process).
  4. Note: If you are admitted to the nursing program, you will be required to send in official hard copies of each transcript in order to have your transfer credits posted to your UD transcript.
  5. For RN to BSN (online) program, there is no set deadline for application submission. Your nursing license and state in which you are licensed must be included when you submit your application.
  6. You will be asked to answer three short essay questions at the end of the application.
