Health Sciences Admission Policies


To ensure awareness of the latest entrance requirements for the Health Sciences program, prospective students should visit the program’s website and review the published admission policies and associated criteria for each application cycle. Additionally, students are encouraged to contact the Office of Enrollment Management or the School of Health Related Professions for more specific information regarding applications, prerequisites, tuition and fees, or other program admission requirements.

Background check

Mississippi law requires all health care workers, including students, to have completed criminal background checks. There is no fee associated with the background check performed at UMMC for students admitted into the program.

Health insurance

All students attending UMMC must show proof of health insurance coverage. Students may complete a waiver showing coverage already obtained or may enroll in the group plan offered by the Medical Center. More information on this requirement may be found online in the UMMC Bulletin or on the Student Accounting webpage. Any questions should be directed to the Office of Student Accounting at (601) 984-1060.
