About the school
Ancilla College, neighboring Donaldson, Indiana, is a two-year private liberal arts college that offers admission to men and women students.

It was in 1966 that Ancilla College started to admit the public as a private liberal arts community college. The College focal point is the seven nearby counties of Indiana. Ancilla College awards associate degrees in several programs, from which Ancilla student graduates can easily transfer to a university or four-year college, especially via the transfer arrangements that the College has with 14 other Indiana universities and colleges.
Total Cost for the Program (excluding textbooks) is $42,970.00

In the event a vacancy occurs in the program on or before the start of classes, the list of alternate students will be called, beginning with the first name on the list, and offered placement in the program. Students admitted in this manner must have the appropriate health, CPR, criminal background check and other required documentation completed prior to the first clinical day held in a facility. (Alternate students not admitted during the current admittance period will be offered admission during the next admittance period based upon the criteria listed.)
Once all places in the nursing program have been filled, and the semester begins, the admissions process is complete.
