Remarks The Student Senate believes this resolutionwill be beneficial to prospective UTA nursing students. With a transparent point system and clearer application requirements, applicants will have a better understanding of where their application stands in reference to whether they may be accepted or not.
Whereas The University of Texas at Arlington's College of Nursing and Health Innovations Bachelors of Science in Nursing Programs are highly sought after with hundreds to thousands of applicants each entrance semester; and
Whereas The current application criteria are listed in a brochure in no order of importance therefore leaving applicants with little to no clue as to the actual strength of their application; and
Whereas Similar programs such as; Tarleton State University, Midwestern State University, Eastern Michigan University, and others offer students their exact application scores; and
Whereas This allows applicants and the University to more objectively gauge the strength of their applications.
Be It Further Resolved That The University of Texas at Arlington immediately clarify the current selection process move towards developing and publishing a point system for both online and On-Campus BSN programs which is to be made available to students so that they can better understand the actual strength of their application as well as the weight that each criterion carry on their application.
