Applications are accepted beginning July 1 each year. The RN-BSN program admits year round during each semester. Students, who attend one of the participating colleges or universities, should receive an approval from their community college dean prior to one of three RN-BSN application deadlines.
The deadline for receipt of the RN-BSN Early Entry application and all supporting documents depends on which semester you apply. Completed applications should include the following:
Prior to application, all RN-BSN Early Entry applicants at one of our partnering community colleges must notify the School of Nursing of your interest in the program. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest in the RN-BSN Early Entry program.
If you have questions regarding the admission criteria, the prerequisite courses or your application's status, please call (601) 984-1080 or (601) 815-0124.
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.
