Supplemental Application


NursingCAS Guide for Applicants to the FGCU Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program 

Important Note:  It is recommended that you obtain admission to FGCU through the Office of Admissions, prior to completing the supplemental BSN application in NursingCAS.  The Nursing Admissions Committee will not consider your application, if you have not been admitted to FGCU by the BSN application deadline for the cycle in which you are applying.


The FGCU BSN Supplemental Application for Admission is available at

  • Create a NursingCAS account.
  • Select at least one program to start your application.  FGCU may not be available to select, if the application is not yet open.  However, just pick any open program to move past this step (you can delete it later when the FGCU application opens).
  • The application is divided into four sections: Personal Information, Academic History, Supporting Documents, and Program Materials.  You may complete the Personal Information, Academic History, Supporting Documents sections at any time.
  • The Program Materials section is specific to FGCU, and will only be available when the application cycle begins.
  • Do not request/submit references.  FGCU does not require them and will not consider them.
  • Applicants can check if their transcripts have been received at any time (even prior to submitting their application) using the Check Status tab in the NursingCAS application.
  • Be prepared to pay a $45 application fee when you have completed the NursingCAS application and are ready to submit it.  Additional fees will be incurred, if you apply to multiple nursing programs in NursingCAS.
