Please check your major to ensure there is an available spot and you're meeting any program-specific deadlines, as several of our majors are highly competitive. This is especially true for our CCNE-accredited nursing program, which requires applications to be received by Dec. 1 prior to next fall semester. Decisions are not made on a rolling basis for nursing, unlike the vast majority of our undergraduate programs.
Additionally, there are several highly competitive majors for transfer applicants. Please apply early for best consideration. Good luck. We look forward to your application!
Once again, Bloomsburg University has earned the title of Military Friendly School from Victory Media, publisher of GI Jobs magazine — the first as a Silver Level Award.
As a Military Friendly School silver level, BU ranks in the top 10 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country working to embrace military service members, veterans and spouses as students ensuring their success on campus.
According to Bob Heckrote, academic adviser for military and undeclared students, 437 military students attend BU. “Military students” are defined as current and former military personnel, their spouses and dependents, and participants in Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, known as ROTC.
To meet the needs of military students, BU provides preferred class scheduling and has established a military students lounge. The BU Student Veterans Association offers opportunities for social and educational activities and is involved in fundraisers to benefit organizations such as The Wounded Warrior Foundation and the American Red Cross.
Each year, Bloomsburg University admissions counselors visit almost 400 high schools throughout the region, as well as Delaware, Maryland, New York and New Jersey. In addition, we attend many college fairs in high schools and community colleges.
Find out which counselor will visit your school. We look forward to meeting you! If your school is not listed, please contact any one of our counselors who will gladly answer your questions and help you learn more about why we're "A great place to be you!"
Our admissions process
» Applications received by December will get priority consideration, especially for our competitive majors.
» If you are interested in nursing, you need to apply by Dec. 1!
» We make decisions on a rolling basis (except nursing). Once your application is completed, it will take up to six weeks to receive a decision. We make decisions continuously until majors are full.
