Nursing Application (Available October 1st – October 31)
Due to the impact of COVID-19, EVC Nursing will ONLY accept official e-transcripts for the October 2020 application cycle. These official transcripts must be electronically received by the nursing department between October 1st-October 31st only. These official transcripts must be sent to email@example.com. Please note: e-transcripts are not sent immediately when you order them (can take up to several days to process). Due to COVID-19, ordering transcripts may take longer for your college to process so please plan accordingly. If your college is not offering e-transcripts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Evergreen Valley College will be a virtual campus for Fall 2020. As such, the nursing department will not accept transcripts that are mailed and dropping off transcripts to the nursing office will not be an option. Any applicants who do not comply with these instructions will result in disqualification. This modification has been implemented to protect the safety of nursing staff and students during the coronavirus pandemic.
