Additional admission criteria for classes beginning May 1, 2024
Preference for admission to the Traditional BSN program will be extended to qualified, currently enrolled at University of Mississippi students first that will have met all prerequisites (62 hours) by program entry in May. If a full cohort is not achieved each year, candidates from other schools may be considered.
Please note that the admission requirements for the Freshman Early-Entry program are separate from the Traditional BSN program.
The Traditional BSN program is a "2+2" program. You complete your prerequisites at the college, university or community college of your choice. The prerequisites for the UMMC program typically take students two years to complete. You may apply for admission when the number of prerequisites courses completed, plus those on the application plan of study, equals 62 credit hours. All required prerequisites courses (62 hours) must be completed prior to entering the nursing program. If you have questions regarding prerequisites or your application's status, please call (601) 984-1080 or (601) 815-0124.

Nursing students must meet all the requirements of the Technical Standards, with or without reasonable accommodations, in order to successfully progress through and graduate from their respective curricula.
