EQUIVALENCY 

After all applications have been received, the department will review each application for the following:

  1. Prerequisite courses taken outside Glendale Community College are equivalent.
  2. Overall GPA of 2.5 and a science GPA (Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology) of 2.5. Applicants must receive a grade of "C" or better in all prerequisite courses. Applicants with more than one (1) repeat in Anatomy, Physiology or Microbiology will be considered ineligible.
    1. Grades of W, C-, D, or F are considered repeats

CHANCELLOR'S FORMULA CUT SCORE

Applicants must have a Chancellor’s Formula Cut Score of 75% or higher. Significant factors that influence this formula include:

  • Overall GPA
  • GPA for Anatomy, Physiology, and Microbiology
  • English GPA
  • Any repetitions of the above sciences for substandard grades, repeats, or withdrawals.

Applicants who are above the cutoff score (75%) will be invited via email to take the TEAS Version VI at Glendale Community College (GCC).

Applicants who are below the cutoff score (75%) are not eligible for the current application period. In order to become eligible at a later date, students will be required to complete a Student Success Remediation Plan that will be developed by GCC’s Nursing Counselor.  The department will notify students about this process at a later date via email.

TEST OF ESSENTIAL ACADEMIC SKILLS (TEAS)

Applicants must pass the TEAS VI with a cut score of 62% or higher. The TEAS VI is necessary for all applicants, regardless of any educational degree. Previous versions of the TEAS will not be accepted.

Applicants who have not taken the TEAS prior to applying will be invited around April (for Summer/Fall applications) or October (for Winter/Spring applications) to take the TEAS VI at Glendale Community College if determined eligible.

Applicants who have already taken the TEAS VI will be asked to send their first score (first attempt) electronically through www.atitesting.com to the Nursing Department using “Glendale CC ADN CA” around April if determined eligible.

Applicants who do not pass the TEAS VI on the first attempt will be directed to the Nursing Counselor around May for development of a Student Success Remediation Plan. 

RANDOM SELECTION

All applicants whose Chancellor’s Formula cut score is 75% or above and pass the TEAS VI with 62% or higher will be eligible for random selection. Notifications will be sent via email sometime in May (for Summer/Fall applications) or November (for Winter/Spring applications)
