RN to BSN Program

Steps to Admission to the University of Hartford RN to BSN Program

1. Online application: Apply online (for free) to the RN to BSN nursing program as a part-time student. Request official transcripts from all colleges you have attended, and ask the issuing institution to send official transcripts to

Office of Admission
University of Hartford
200 Bloomfield Avenue
West Hartford, CT 06117

Note: If you have transcripts under prior name(s), ask the college or university sending the transcript to include your current name. If you believe a transcript may have been sent to our Office of Admission without your current name on it, please notify the transfer counselor in the Office of Admission. This will facilitate the processing of your application. Email or call 860.768.4296.

2. RN to BSN Group Informational Open House: You are invited to attend an RN to BSN Group Informational Open House. Reservations are not necessary for these general information sessions. If no sessions are scheduled, contact Carla Fuller at 860.768.4213 or

3. Formal admission to RN to BSN Program: When the admissions process is complete, you will receive a sealed postcard in the mail from the University of Hartford. It will have your new student ID and email address. In a separate mailing you will receive an “equivalency report” listing the names of general education courses that have transferred into the University of Hartford. Save your equivalency report and bring it with you to your program planning session.

4. Download your University of Hartford transcript: Once you are admitted and have a student ID, log on to the online Student Self-Service Center to access your University of Hartford transcript. Check the transcript to make sure that all of the courses you have taken transferred in and that there are no courses missing. Your nursing prerequisite courses and the nursing courses from your ADN program will appear as a 60-credit block on the University of Hartford transcript. If there are missing courses, contact the University of Hartford Office of Admission at, 860.768.4296.

5. Attend an RN to BSN Program Planning Session: After you are admitted, you will receive a letter inviting you to attend an RN to BSN Program Planning Session with a transfer counselor. Email to sign up for a program planning session. Bring your equivalency report and a copy of your University of Hartford transcript with you to the meeting. The equivalency report is important because it shows which courses have been designated for transfer into the University. The transfer counselor will map out several different program plans and allow you to choose the one that best fits your lifestyle needs.
