FAQ's

  1. Does Glen Oaks have a waiting list?
    • No, we have a testing in procedure that we follow for admission into the program.
  2. What is the testing procedure and what is the test?
    • The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is administered via the internet from ATI testing. A study book can be purchased in the Glen Oaks bookstore or online at atitesting.com. Success rates for students using the test book have been high. The procedure is basic, with the top 40 students getting into the program. Your test score and GPA on your pre-requisite college courses ONLY are averaged together to arrive at the final score that will be considered. Once the final scores are determined, they are then rank ordered. The top 40 are selected for admission.
  3. Will my classes transfer from other colleges?
    • Only actual nursing classes from another college don't transfer. All pre-requisite courses with a 2.0 GPA or better are transferable to Glen Oaks, but you must transfer them officially, from your institution to ours, and you must ask for them to be evaluated for nursing.
  4. Is the program full or part time, night or day?
    • At this point in time we have only a full time program and it is a daytime program only. We are developing a part time program for the Level II (LPN to RN) admittance to start in Spring 2008.
  5. Is Financial Aid available?
    • Yes it is, contact the Financial Aid Office at Glen Oaks.
  6. How do I apply to the Nursing Program?
    • You can print and complete the Nursing Application then send it to Glen Oaks Community College, 62249 Shimmel Rd. Centreville MI, 49032. You should see an academic advisor here at the college to get help with your plan for entering the program.
  7. If I am not currently a Glen Oaks Student, How do I keep updated on information I need to come to the program?
    • An information meeting is held every October (this year the date is Tuesday, 10/23/07) which is considered mandatory and the easiest way for you to get information you need. You can also meet with the assistant dean of the program before you apply. Visit the website regularly for updates and requirement information.
  8. If I don't qualify when I test, does my application get moved automatically to the next year, and will my test score be re-usable the next year or do I need to test again?
    • You must re-submit an application to be considered and yes, you can keep your test score or retake the test to attempt a higher score...with the most recent test score being used to determine eligibility.
