Please Note: Neither Towson University nor the Department of Nursing are responsible for transcripts mailed and not received by the deadline. Upon acceptance to the ATB option, further information will be provided regarding University Admissions. Students applying to multiple partners must submit an ATB application and application fee for each community college partner. Additional sets of transcripts are not required.

Towson Review and Eligibility

Screening for admission to the ATB option will occur after our community college partner has notified applicants about admission to the associate’s degree nursing program. Students who submit an ATB application but do not receive formal admission to the community college nursing program are considered ineligible for the ATB option. Application fees are non-refundable.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Towson University students can apply for a wide variety of aid programs from a variety of sources. During all years of the ATB option, students may apply for all available federal and state undergraduate grant, scholarship, and loan programs. All federal and state aid must be processed by TU. Your aid for each term will be based on your combined enrollment level, which is based on the total combined credits that you are taking at both schools each term (TU and your community college partner). (Example: 3 TU credits + 9 community college credits = 12 enrolled credits for that term.)
