NOTICE: The application deadline for a January start is November 1st, with a file completion deadline of November 15th. The application deadline for a July start is May 1st, with a file completion deadline of May 15th.

  • The ATI TEAS Entrance Exam with a 60% minimum composite score and a 66% minimum Reading subset score. ATI TEAS scores must be no more than two (2) years old.


  • ACT minimum composite score of 19 or above and a minimum score of 19 or above in the Reading subset. ACT test scores must be no more than ten (10) years old. BHCLR “superscores” the ACT by using the highest subset score from each test to calculate your composite score.
