Frontier Nursing University Waitlist Facts
Please review the following facts about the waitlist at Frontier Nursing University (FNU). If after reading the Waitlist Facts you find your question wasn’t answered please contact your Admissions Officer.
The FNU Admissions Committee has determined that you meet the minimum criteria for admission to FNU. However, with limited space per class some students are placed on a waitlist. In the event an accepted applicant is not able to attend, applicants on the waitlist are offered admission.
Be sure to reply to the email from your Admissions Officer indicating your decision to be placed on the waitlist. If a response is not received by the deadline provided, it will be assumed you do not want to be placed on the waitlist and your application for admission will be declined. Once you have accepted the waitlist, please check your email daily, including spam and junk folders, so you won’t miss an admission email which will need a very prompt response. Below are some waitlist facts:
- Being on the waitlist does not guarantee admission to the University. It means all admissions criteria have been met and you will receive an offer of admission if a place becomes available.
- The application process at FNU is competitive. There are a limited number of beds on campus and limited space in our classrooms. Our orientation sessions (Frontier Bounds) are critical to success in our programs and cannot be omitted.
- Applicant files and supporting documents are reviewed and scored by the FNU Admissions Committee. Scores are based on GPA, goal statements, references, work history, and many other criteria. All applications are scored by at least two faculty members. Students with the highest scores are admitted first. Once a class is filled, a waitlist is generated.
- Some admitted applicants do defer or decline, so we do admit from the waitlist. We cannot tell you how many applicants are on the waitlist or where your application falls. These numbers are constantly changing.
- Admission Officers are not privy to information about how an applicant’s score was determined and therefore are unable to provide you with specific reasons for being placed on a waitlist. Please do not ask.
- Once placed on the waitlist you may not submit additional documents in the hopes of increasing your chances for admission.
- Applicants may be admitted from the waitlist up to one week prior to Frontier Bound. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to plan ahead in the event that you are admitted: (Frontier Bound expenses, travel expenses, health forms (see below), time off work, and so on).
- As a waitlisted applicant, you may be offered admission to a class starting later than the one to which you originally applied. You will automatically be moved to the pool of applicants to be considered for the next available class/term in the event we are unable to offer you admission for the class/term for which you originally applied.
- It is possible for applicants to remain on the waitlist for two consecutive terms; Winter/Spring, Spring/Summer and so on. If you are not chosen from the waitlist after two consecutive terms, your application for admission will be declined. In the event your application is declined, you may re-apply after six (6) months. If you re-apply you will need to re-send all new documents with the exception of previously submitted transcripts. We will carry these forward. Any courses taken in the interim will need transcripts submitted.
- Only admitted students receive an FNU email account, and access to BT101.
- Registration for Frontier Bound and housing may be completed only after being admitted to FNU.
Health form information in the event that you are admitted from the waitlist: Once admitted, all health information must be uploaded into BT101 before permission can be granted to arrive on campus for Frontier Bound. In the event that you are admitted from the waitlist, it would be wise to have all this information ready to upload ahead of time. Health forms cannot be accepted via email, fax, or paper copies sent by mail. Below is an official list of required health forms:
- A current health examination (current within one year throughout the clinical experience)
- Vaccinations or proof of immunity via titers to Mumps, Rubella, and Rubeola
- Hepatitis B vaccinations or proof of immunity via titers
- Varicella vaccinations or proof of immunity via titers
- Freedom of TB in a communicable stage via 2 part skin test, blood test, or chest x-ray
