Technical Standards for Admission, Progression and Graduation
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 63 semester hours. All required prerequisites courses (63 semester hours) must be completed prior to entering the nursing program. Please note that there have been changes to the prerequisites courses, and these new and/or revised prerequisites will become effective for students who will be starting the Traditional or Accelerated BSN program in the 2014 summer semester.Download the BSN Prerequisite Checklist (.pdf)
