Summer Start Admissions

With  Summer Start Admissions at Methodist College, new students can get a jump start on their educational journey. Courses offered during the summer semester for new students include general education courses, entry level Nursing courses, developmental courses, and the Nursing Assistant course.

In addition, eligible* nursing students could enroll in the Quick Start Nursing Bundle which is comprised of the N100, N120, and the N211 courses. Students could opt to take HS 200 - Health Informatics instead of the N211 course as part of the three-course bundle. (*Nursing bundle eligibility may be dependent on whether the student needs to take developmental courses.)

Summer Start Admissions is available for new students in the following majors: Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Prelicensure, Bachelor of Science in Nursing - Second Degree, Healthcare Administration, Social Work, Medical Assistant and Nursing Assistant. The Master of Science in Nursing is not a Summer Start Admissions eligible program.

Newly admitted students in the BSN-Second Degree are only eligible to take general education courses in the Summer Start Admissions program.

Summer courses may be offered in face-to-face, online, or blended formats.
