Active Duty Military BSN Program Information
Who can apply?
Active duty military applying and/or accepted into a commissioning program (eg: AECP, MECP, NECP).
How do I apply?
Do not apply to UNCG as a transfer student until you are accepted into the upper division nursing program.
Active duty military students apply to the upper division through the Veterans Access Program Process (please see the application under the Veterans Access Program tab or at the bottom of this page).
What type of support will the program provide?
UNCG currently provides active duty military students and veterans with counseling, academic skills, library, computer and study rooms, a Student Veterans Association, and a UNCG VA Certifying Official. In addition, active duty and military students will have access to:
• Individualized consideration for application and clinical placement
• A VAP Study Room and a part-time counselor to support students
• A tutor to assist with computer skills, study habits, nursing content, and RN licensure (NCLEX) test-taking skills
• Assistance preparing for the RN licensure NCLEX examination
• The UNCG Student Veterans Association, which holds social gatherings, assists students’ understanding of how to succeed in college, and shares information on campus services for veterans
What if I am deployed during the program?
UNCG allows withdrawal from courses without academic penalty in cases of deployment. Further, the UNC system has a liberal policy of transfer credit between campuses, and if persons are deployed to domestic installations, UNC system credit is available in many parts of the state. Transfer credit from other universities will be reviewed in conjunction with the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, the UNCG VA Certifying Official, and the Dean of the School of Nursing. It is possible that courses may be delivered through electronic mechanisms. See the UNCG Military Call-Up Policy for additional information.
