Direct Admission Information

Students intending to major in nursing at the time of their application to St. Olaf College may be considered for direct admission to the nursing major as a first-year student.  Direct admission as a first-year student is limited, competitive, and conditional.  Students seeking direct admission to the nursing major must complete an additional application to the major at the same time they submit an application to St. Olaf College. 

To receive login credentials to access the nursing application:

  • Students will need to submit a Part One or a Common Application
  • You will receive login credentials to access the nursing application
  • Applications for the nursing major will be reviewed at the same time as your application for admission to St. Olaf College

Here is the link for the Direct Admission Login page once you receive your credentials to sign in:  Direct Admission Login Link

Finalists for direct admission to the nursing major will be contacted directly by the Nursing Department to schedule an interview.

Students who did not apply or who were not selected for first-year direct admission may apply for admission to the nursing major during the first semester of their sophomore year at St. Olaf College.  For more information, please see the Application and Admission to the Nursing Major tab.
