Candidates seeking entry in Spring 2023 should select and complete the FLCC nursing application — intended for the following programs:

  • A.A.S. in Nursing — Traditional Entry
  • A.A.S. in Nursing — LPN to RN Accelerated Option
  • A.S. in Health Care Studies: Healthcare Track — Nursing Intent (prerequisite coursework)

Review our Nursing Admission page for details on all requirements, and to determine your eligibility.

Supporting Documents

Some applicants are required to submit additional, supplemental materials based on specific requirements for their major or on the unique circumstances of the applicant. If this is the case, the applicant will be contacted upon receipt of the online application form.

After submitting your online application, you are required to provide proof of high school equivalency typically in the form of a final, official high school transcript showing graduation, or a G.E.D. or T.A.S.C. score report.

  • Home schooled students will receive further instructions upon submitting the application regarding additional options to provide proof of substantial equivalency.
  • Transfer students who have earned an associate or bachelor's degree will likely not have to submit a high school transcript, as long as we receive an official, final copy of a college transcript that includes high school graduation information.

Students must request a copy directly from the high school and/or college(s) attended. Please check the school's website for transcript request instructions. The high school and/or college(s) should issue the official transcript to FLCC by:

  • Electronic submission: by an online service (i.e. eScript or Parchment)
  • Fax: (585) 785-1734 (high school documents only)
  • Mail: Office of Admissions, Finger Lakes Community College, 3325 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua, NY 14424
