(This will ensure that the prerequisite courses you completed and passed in other schools or colleges do MATCH, or acceptable, with the ones required in the TSTC in Harlingen LVN-RN Transition program. Submission of transcripts of records to the TSTC Admission Office for evaluation of courses is as much important as the other requirements.)
(The scoring process utilizes the point system in the final selection of the applicants for acceptance. It will be affected by the number of years or how long ago the applicant took them. The benchmark for the application period is five years. Applicants who took them within the last five years will be given higher points than those who took them longer than that. The scoring process will also consider the grades of the pre-requisite subjects. Better course grades mean higher points. Re-taking prerequisite subjects to earn better grades and higher points remains an option.)
If these prerequisite courses were taken at other institutions with different course numbers, please see Advisement Center as soon as possible.
(During the application process, all applicants may be asked undergo fingerprinting for CBC by Texas BON, which will in return send the applicants blue cards and letters as proofs of clearance. These documents must be submitted to Program Chair prior to fall semester registration. Failure to submit blue cards or other letters of clearance will not be allowed to register or continue with the program.)
(These tests are available for the applicants when the application period opens. Taking them early on is advisable. Scheduling it at the last minute or close to submission of application packets may not allow you to take it as seats are LIMITED per testing day. Take note as well that scores from this test will be one of the primary criteria in choosing the final roster of accepted applicants. Good luck on your test..!!)
Scoring grids mostly depend on entrance test scores, overall GPA and course grades.
