Tired of Waiting? So Were We. Introducing Rolling Admissions for our RN to BSN Program!

MSUM_Signature_Vert_R&G

We realize that students need to know what’s happening for their fall or spring semester. Finding out if you have been accepted into a program only shortly before it starts doesn’t leave a lot of room to make backup plans if things didn’t turn out the way you had hoped. It is a bit of guesswork on how many programs you should apply to “guarantee” you’ll get into one, and we want to help our students by notifying them as soon as possible.

Every 6 weeks from now on we will be reviewing the applications we have received and contact the applicants with our decision. That means you can apply right now and find out within a month! This early decision gives you the chance to make changes and finalize your plans and lower some of the nervous energy you may be feeling. It also gets rid of the looming deadline of when the application window slams shut.

The first group of applicants have already found out if they are in or not. I do have to say, we had a lot of excellent applicants for Spring 2018 so far. We will still have the same number of spots open, so the earlier you turn in your application the better if you want to better your chances of acceptance.
