Acceptance Process

Admission to the MATC Associate Degree of Nursing program is determined through a competitive selection process. Submission of an application does not guarantee a position in the program.Priority status for admission will be given on each July ADN admission date to the recent MATC PN graduating class if they have met the Admission and ADN Packet requirements.

Applicants will be notified in writing of their acceptance or placement on an alternate list. Only applicants that have met all deadlines and have a complete admission packet will receive a letter announcing acceptance to the program or placement on an alternate list. Applicants must respond in writing of their plan to accept or decline enrollment in the nursing program by the date designated in the notification letter. In addition, a non-refundable $100 deposit must be paid when accepting a seat in the program. Deposit will be applied toward program tuition and fees at the start of classes. A student choosing to defer or withdraw their intention will forfeit their deposit.

Failure to respond will result in forfeiture of a seat in the Associate Degree Nursing Program.
