Nursing (ADN)/Nursing Transition (LVN to ADN)

The ADN Application deadline has been extended to


  • Anyone submitting an ADN application by 4-10-2020 will receive additional time after that date to complete the rest of the application steps.
  • Please go to the applicant meetings page for on-line applicant meeting dates. It is mandatory to attend an on-line meeting, if you have not already attended an applicant meeting during the current application period or during 2019 application periods.

Announcement Regarding HESI Testing

  • Due to the COVID 19 crisis, the testing center at Alvin Community College is closed for the foreseeable future. This includes the HESI A2 exam.
  • Applicants who have not yet taken the HESI may either try to find another testing location or re-apply to the ACC ADN program during the Fall 2020 application period.
  • Individuals who have submitted an application by the April 10, 2020 deadline will have an extension of April 30, 2020 to submit HESI A2 scores.
  • The Evolve company does not maintain a central web page of testing locations or schedules, you would have to contact other nursing schools and testing centers to try to schedule a HESI A2 test elsewhere.
  • This situation is very unfortunate as we want all eligible students to be able to apply to ACC ADN program.
  • The College's first priority is the safety of students, and we cannot risk gathering students into one room for HESI testing. HESI proctoring companies have been overwhelmed by requests for on-line testing and have not been able to accommodate ACC's requests for on-line HESI testing.
  • Please re-visit this web page periodically for any new announcements regarding HESI testing.
