Frequently Asked Questions about the ADN Program
I want to apply to the program. How do I get an admission packet?
Admissions packets are available on the MACC website at http://www.macc.edu/application-packet-adn. They are also available by contacting the Health Sciences office at 1-660-263-4110, ext.11250.
If I already have a degree is it necessary for me to have an ACT Score of 20?
Yes. A minimum ACT score of 20 is a requirement.
Is there a time frame for my ACT score?
Yes. The ACT must be repeated if completed five years or more before the date of entry into the ADN program.
Do you round GPAs? (Example: My GPA is a 2.67; do you round it to a 2.70?)
No, GPAs are not rounded. Please refer to the admissions criteria for the GPA requirement of each program.
Do I have to have my high school transcript?
Yes. Your high school transcript is required as part of the admissions packet.
Do I have to have all of my college transcripts?
Yes. All college transcripts must be present in order to evaluate the cumulative GPA. A transcript is required for each individual school you have attended.
If I am currently a MACC student, do I still need to send a transcript in my admissions packet?
If it has been less than 5 years since you have attended MACC, you do not need to include your MACC transcript. If it has been greater than 5 years since you last attended MACC, you will need to include the MACC transcript in your admission packet.
Can I submit my admissions packet even though it is not fully completed?
Admissions packets must be complete when submitted. A checklist is located in the packet to help ensure you have completed all of the items. Packets missing required admissions items will not be accepted.
Can I have my references write a letter of recommendation instead of completing the required reference forms?
References must be completed on the required reference forms. You will find them in your admissions packet.
When will I be notified of the admissions committee’s decision?
Letters of acceptance or regret will sent via the mail 60 days after the admissions deadline.
How much does the program cost?
Cost including tuition and program specific cost can be located on the college website at http://www.macc.edu/admissions/fees-and-tuition.
If I am accepted in the program where should I expect to travel for clinical experiences?
A list of possible clinical locations is listed on the nursing website in the screen titled “Things You Need to Know”.
If I have many of the non-nursing courses already completed, can I take nursing courses all together and get the program done in less than 2 years?
No, the nursing courses follow a set sequence with the first nursing class starting in the fall semester.
