Applicants must complete two applications, one to the University and one to the UWF Usha Kundu College of Health:

  1. First Application – apply to University: apply online to UWF by completing the online application (military applicants do not use CAS) and selecting the BSN degree program.  Have your official transcripts (including JST) sent to admissions@uwf.edu. 
    • The application fee is $30, creates student account and official degree audit/plan
    • Applicants are accepted into the program in a pending status.
    • Applicants will be able to continue completion of general education or prerequisite courses while in this phase of the program.
    • Plan for 6 to 8 weeks to complete this process as it depends upon the receipt of all official transcripts
  2. Second Application – apply for formal acceptance to the UWF Usha Kundu College of Health Dr. D.W. McMillan BSN Nursing Program by submitting a supplemental application package.  This is the program that contains the enlisted commissioning program seats.

Notes: 

  1. The process of being formally accepted to the College of Health BSN program (Step 2 above) relies upon the information obtained in the process of being accepted into the University (Step 1 above). The University is not able to consider supplemental applications from applicants who fail to complete the Step 1 Admissions process prior to the end date to receive supplemental applications.
  2. Applicants whose supplemental applications are accepted will receive acceptance letters and degree plans for inclusion in their enlistment commissioning packages to the military service.
