MUSC College of Nursing participates in an online Nursing Centralized Application Service (NursingCAS) to receive applications. You must create an account, search for this program for your intended semester of entry, and complete the required steps to apply online. All application materials must be submitted through NursingCAS.
The application is to be supported with:
- Official transcripts of all collegiate course work completed
- 3 reference forms included with the application
- 100 word essay
- Criminal background check and drug screen
A supplemental university application, through MUSC’s Office of Enrollment Management, is also required. We encourage applicants to finish the application within NursingCAS before submitting the supplemental MUSC application.
Applicants to the ABSN program must have at least sixty (60) semester hours of prerequisite course work and three of the four required science courses completed at the time of application. The preferred minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Students must earn a minimum grade of “C” in prerequisite courses. Please review all admission requirements prior to applying.
