It’s important to note that NursingCAS is only processing the application, schools and programs have full control over admissions decisions.
Before you begin the application process you should complete a few initial steps to set yourself up for success.

Consult each program’s page to check if the programs you are applying to charge a supplemental fee in addition to the NursingCAS fee. You must submit any supplemental fees directly to the programs you are applying to; NursingCAS does not process supplemental fees. NursingCAS cannot give a refund if a selection was made in error or transfer the payment to another program. NursingCAS fees are subject to change.
NursingCAS Fees for the 2019-20 Cycle (August 13, 2019-January 31, 2021):
NursingCAS offers a limited number of fee waivers to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis. Each fee waiver covers only the initial application fee, so if you wish to apply to additional programs, you are responsible for the remaining balance. If you received a fee waiver during a previous cycle, you may apply for another in the next cycle.
You may request a fee waiver as soon as you create an application, but keep in mind that funds can be quickly depleted. Contact customer service before you submit a fee waiver request to determine if waivers are still available. You can find detailed information about the NursingCAS fee waiver system in the Applicant Help Center.
