NursingCAS Application URL and Hyperlinks for 2021-2022 Cycle: Update to Program Websites Required 

The new 2021-2022 cycle will launch on August 12, 2021. With two NursingCAS cycles open simultaneously for 5 months, it is important that users accurately update hyperlinks so students can access the application in the correct cycle portal. It is highly recommended that users place “Apply Now” buttons throughout their college website to easily direct students to the application in multiple places.

There are 3 options available:

  1. Multi-Cycle NursingCAS Landing Page (Preferred):
    • Replace all webpage links on your college sites to direct students to https://nursingcas.liaisoncas.org/apply/. This page helps students navigate the overlapping cycles as it will direct them to select the term for which they seek to matriculate and the appropriate cycle application. This URL will not change from year to year and, once set, will not require maintenance or updates.
  2. Deep Link:
    • Deep Links allow a school to provide applicants with a link directly to the Applicant Portal’s Add Program page with the programs pre-filtered. If you choose this option, replace all webpage links on your college sites to direct students to your personalized Deep Link. Deep Links must be updated annually. If your program falls outside of the standard cycle dates (e.g. some Nurse Anesthesia programs), we recommend you consider this option. Additional information is available on working with Deep Links.
    • Please note the following:
  3. Present the 2 URLs for Each Overlapping Cycle:
    • In place of a single link, programs can choose to provide a direct link to the 2020-2021 cycle and an additional direct link to the 2021-2022 cycle. NOTE: If your program falls outside of the standard cycle dates (e.g. some Nurse Anesthesia programs), we recommend you consider this option to provide a link to the specific cycle your program is utilizing. If your program chooses this option, these links must be updated annually.
