How do I apply for admission?Submit the Application for Admission, pay any required application fee, and submit official transcripts.

I attended college but didn’t earn any credit. Do I still need to have my transcript submitted?Yes, we require final transcripts from all institutions previously attended.

I plan on take a pre-nursing course before applying to the nursing program. Do I still need to sign/submit a nursing acknowledgment form?The Nursing Program Acknowledgement Form is required at the time of general admission so that the student understands the academic requirements needed for entrance into the Nursing program. Please contact Admissions at for a copy of the form.

I have a transcript at home. Can I send that with my application?An admission decision can only be made with official documents. Transcripts are considered official when they are either mailed directly to Midway University from the issuing institution in a sealed envelope or sent electronically by a secured third party such as National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment.

Midway University accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited institutions that are 100-level or higher with a grade of “C” or better.

An official evaluation will be completed by the Registrar’s Office after acceptance.
