What if my transcripts are from a country other than the United States?

Applicants whose native language is not English and who have not graduated from an American high school will be required to have their transcripts translated and evaluated by a professional evaluation company. The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) exam may also be required.

Any and all documentation from schools attended in a foreign country must be translated into English, and converted into the American grading system.

How do I submit my application materials?

Application materials can be submitted via regular mail, email, fax, or in person.

Official transcripts can be either hard copy, or electronic:

  • Hard copy: Transcripts must be in their originally sealed, never-before-opened envelopes.
  • Electronic: Delivered by your school directly to admissions@laboure.edu using a verified electronic transcript service.
Why do you need my high school transcript or diploma?

Labouré College’s policy requires all applicants to submit copies of their high school transcript or a copy of their diploma, regardless of their college experience.

What is the deadline to apply?

The admissions process at Labouré College is run on a rolling basis for all programs. Rolling admissions means that there are no final deadlines to apply; rather, applications are reviewed as they become complete, and until a program is filled.

** Please be aware that programs with limited capacity can fill up quickly. In the event that a program is filled for a particular semester, the completed application will be considered for the next available semester.

Please contact Admissions at (617) 322-3575 or email us at admissions@laboure.edu for more information.

Can I apply directly into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program (RN-to-BSN) without completing the Associate in Science in Nursing first?

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Labouré College is an RN-to-BSN program, which means that applicants must already have their RN licensure, or be awaiting their NCLEX examination date for RN licensure.

Registered Nurses (RNs) who have passed their NCLEX examination are eligible to apply for admission into the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at Labouré.

If you have completed an Associate in Science in Nursing program, and are awaiting your NCLEX examination, you may apply to the BSN program, but may only take the general education courses within the RN-BSN program until you have obtained your RN license.

If you do not have your RN licensure, you will need to start with the Associate in Science in Nursing program first, which will prepare you to seamlessly transition into the BSN component.

Does Labouré College offer an LPN-RN bridge program?

Yes. Labouré College offers an Advanced Placement LPN-RN Program that is designed for current LPNs wishing to attain an Associate in Science degree in Nursing and qualify for RN licensure.

To be eligible for advanced placement, the candidate must complete the Transfer Application: Associate in Science in Nursing Application procedure through the Admissions Department.

Advanced Placement applicants must supply a copy of their current LPN license with their application, and may be eligible for professional course transfer credit via Credit by Examination. Please contact the Office of Admissions to learn more.

Can I transfer in my prior college coursework?

Students enrolled in degree programs (associate or bachelor) at Labouré College may transfer in prior coursework, as long as the courses meet the criteria outlined in our Transfer Credit Policy. We do not grant transfer credit for life experience or prior professional/clinical coursework.

Transfer credit is not available for certificate programs.

Will I take clinical courses in my first semester?

Each program at Labouré College has different clinical requirements and clinical start dates vary.

Degree programs that include a general education core typically see clinical courses begin once the student completes the general education courses.

Students in certificate programs typically begin clinical courses in the first or second semester.

For questions about a specific program's clinical requirements, please contact the Office of Admissions at (617) 322-3575 or admissions@laboure.edu.

How much is tuition?

Each program is priced differently. Please refer to our tuition and fees page for tuition information.

Books, supplies, uniforms, and professional association membership fees vary per program.

Am I eligible for financial aid?

There is a variety of financial aid available to students who enroll in the associate, bachelor, and certificate programs. Financial aid may consist of federal and state aid such as loans and grants, and private aid such as discounts, vouchers, and scholarships.

Please contact financialaid@laboure.edu to find out what financial aid you are eligible for.

Where are you located? How do I get there?

The campus is situated between East Milton Square and Dorchester's Lower Mills (an approximate 3 minute drive from either direction). If taking public transportation, Labouré can be reached by taking the Ashmont-Mattapan trolley line from either the Ashmont or Mattapan MBTA station.
