Applications are available online beginning July 1, one year prior to the year of admission. Traditional BSN students are admitted one time each academic year, during the summer semester, and the deadline to apply is Jan. 15. Applications received less than two weeks prior to the deadline cannot be assured of adequate time for notification of any missing or incomplete documents.
When applying, all parts to the application, including any supplemental materials, must be received by the deadline. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance status in March. Please note: If you would like to be considered for both the Accelerated BSN program, as well as the Traditional BSN program, you must submit two separate applications. However, you only need only to submit one set of transcripts and test scores. For a step-by-step guide to the Traditional BSN application process, download the Undergraduate Quick-Start Guide.

UMMC applies the definitions and conditions stated here as required by state law in the classification of students as residents or nonresidents for the assessment of fees. Requests for a review of residency classification should be submitted to the Office of Enrollment Management.
No student may be admitted to the University of Mississippi Medical Center as a resident of Mississippi unless his/her residence has been in Mississippi preceding his/her admission.
Nonresidents may petition the University of Mississippi Medical Center for a change of residency classification. A person who enters Mississippi from another state and enters a system institution is considered a nonresident, unless the person meets the residency requirements as a minor or adult as set out above. Provided, however, that any person who has attained 21 years of age and has thereafter actually established residency as an adult and resided within Mississippi for 12 consecutive months after attaining 21 years of age upon sworn affidavit and other representation, may petition the University of Mississippi Medical Center for a change in residency classification for the purposes of fees and tuition assessment. UMMC may make reasonable inquiry into the validity of the petitioner's claim. Such petition for change of residency must be made on or before the last day a student may register at the Medical Center without penalty.
