Community College Co-Admission Partnerships for RN to BSN Students

What is Co-Admission:

The Co-Admission Agreement between Linfield College and our Community College partners facilitates student progression from the Associate of Applied Science degree program to the Bachelor of Science degree program (RN to BSN) through consistent  program communication, curricular coordination, and focused academic advising. Collaboratively, we are promoting successful undergraduate educational experiences for nursing students.

Benefits of Participating in the Co-Admission Agreement:

  • Meet with academic advisors and faculty while you are attending the community college to learn about Linfield's RN to BSN program and opportunities that lie ahead.
  • Work one-on-one with an admission counselor to develop an academic plan that will support your personal and professional goals.
  • Earn transfer credit for previous academic experiences and design an efficient plan for progression to the BSN degree.
  • Take advantage of a free application (no fee) and designate your catalog year for curricular requirements.*
  • Access general education and elective course offerings (one course per term) at Linfield while attending your community college. 
  • Benefit from focused advising and consistent communication that will support your academic experience.

*Students participating in the Co-Admission Agreement will have six academic terms (including Fall, January, Spring, Summer) from the date of graduation with an Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree to register for Linfield courses. If a student does not register within six consecutive terms, he/she will be considered for admission as a regular RN to BSN applicant.
