NursingCAS is a free tool for your school to use. You can choose which programs to post on the application and have control over your branding and admission criteria. NursingCAS can also integrate with existing systems already used on your campus. Applicants pay a nominal fee to use the service and benefit from the convenience of being able to research and apply to any participating program with a single, online application.

Schools access applications, data, and supporting materials such as transcripts submitted via NursingCAS through secure web-based admissions software, called WebAdMIT. WebAdMIT has a scoring rubric tool and tools for tracking interviews, conducting an online review of applicants, calculating GPAs, sending and tracking applicant communications, running queries, building custom reports (and access to comparative reports), and exporting data to import into internal systems. You can also download PDFs and create Excel spreadsheets of the applicant data.
