We highly recommend that you complete the process as early as possible and allow ample time for all transcripts and evaluations to be returned prior to the deadline of August 1, 2023 for the early application deadline and January 1, 2024 for the standard application deadline. All applications submitted by both deadlines will be considered for Fall 2024 admission. Applicants will only interview once per year. To apply, visit www.nursingCAS.org.
New this year: Roughly one month before the deadline, we will start selecting candidates who will be asked to complete a video-taped interview through a third-party agency. This will be a $53.00 fee.
From these interview sessions, we will then select candidates to come to William Beaumont University Hospital (formerly known as Beaumont Royal Oak) for an in-person interview. Interview dates are as follows:
- Early cycle – September 7, 8, 12, 15
- Standard cycle – February 5, 6, 7, 9
Before an applicant’s file can be reviewed for full program admission, all application documents must be received through the NursingCAS system. No application material should be sent to Oakland University or the Admissions Coordinator.
