How Does The Application Process Work?    

All prospective students must apply via a centralized, online application form, located on the City Colleges of Chicago (CCC) nursing web page. The online is reviewed by the Office of the Registrar and the CCC Nursing Program Admissions Committee.

Step 2: Complete the online application form.    

Step 3: The Office of the Registrar will review the application to determine eligibility.    

Step 4: An email will be sent to the CCC email account notifying you about your admission status.     

If the Office of the Registrar confirms the application as qualified:    

Step 5: The Office of the Registrar will send an information packet about how to apply for the ATI TEAS exam. Please do not register for the exam until directed by the Office of the Registrar. ATI TEAS exams must be taken at one of the City Colleges of Chicago.
