Spring Preview Day - March 24, 2018
Join the faculty, staff and students of Samuel Merritt University for an informative day of information sessions, campus tours, and networking at Spring Preview Day.
ABSN Information Sessions
ABSN information sessions are held on a regular basis throughout the year. Each information session will cover the program curriculum and admission requirements, and also provide prospective students with the opportunity to learn more about the program from faculty and students.
New: Bring your transcripts to the information session!
Prospective students now have another option to have their transcripts reviewed. Come to an information session and bring a copy of your unofficial transcripts with you. Leave them with the admissions counselor and they will review your transcripts and provide you with a complete evaluation within two weeks. Avoid making an extra trip to campus and get your transcripts evaluated much faster than waiting for an appointment!
