Austin Community College and TTUHSC Concurrent Admission
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Austin Community College (ACC) and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) concurrent admission program. The articulation agreement between these schools will allow you to plan to transition into the TTUHSC School of Nursing RN to BSN program upon successful completion of the ADN program.
Many employers are currently requiring that RNs be enrolled in a baccalaureate program of study or have earned their BSN as a condition of employment. Employers' reasoning is based on clinical research that has demonstrated the professional level of knowledge gained through baccalaureate education has a major impact on improving patient outcomes. The education you receive from TTUHSC School of Nursing will prepare you to become a leader, innovator and discoverer. This website is designed to give you the information you need to make an informed decision.
To be eligible, you must complete the following steps:
- Complete a Declaration of Intent (DOI) form during the first semester of coursework at ACC. Forms can be found here. Students who do not complete the DOI in their first semester will not be in compliance with the articulation agreement. For more information about the DOI, contact your advisor at ACC.
- Submit a formal application to the RN to BSN Program at TTUHSC; and, meet all minimum admission requirements. For application dates as well how to apply, go to www.ttuhsc.edu/son/rntobsn and select the "Application" tab.
- Upon completion of your ADN education, you will receive provisional acceptance to the School of Nursing's RN to BSN Program and may take NURS 4381 Issues and Trends in Nursing, while waiting for RN licensure.
- Upon passing the NCLEX examination (RN licensure exam), you will be granted full admission to the RN to BSN program and may enroll in full-time studies.
Estimated tuition and fee information may be viewed at www.ttuhsc.edu/son/prospective/fees.
Student Business Services can assist you with a breakdown of fees and the payment schedule.
Students will be under a provisional status until licensed as a registered nurse and upon successful completion of NURS 4381, "Issues and Trends in Nursing," in the RN to BSN degree plan. Financial Aid is available once the provisional status is lifted and may be accessed at www.ttuhsc.edu/financialaid/.
