Application Process

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 NursingCAS application is to be supported with:

  • Official transcripts from all collegiate coursework
  • Three (3) satisfactory reference letters
  • 100-word essay
  • Resume (including health care related work and/or volunteer experience)

Admissions decisions are offered on a rolling basis

*Applicants are encouraged to submit early as the admissions committee makes rolling admissions decision. While applications are processed on a rolling basis, the application review process takes time and we cannot guarantee an immediate admission decision. All applicants who apply by the specified deadline will be considered and all applicants will receive an admission decision.

For Admissions questions, contact the MUSC Office of Enrollment Management at 843-792-2536 or The Office of Enrollment Management Admissions team email.

RN license

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 RN-BSN program must have at least sixty (60) semester hours of prerequisite coursework and three of the four required science courses completed at the time of application. The preferred minimum cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. Students must earn a minimum grade of “C” in prerequisite courses. Please review all admission requirements prior to applying.

Additional Considerations:
International Applicants
MUSC’s College of Nursing degree programs are unable to admit international students requiring an F-1 visa. Applications will only be accepted from U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or those holding other valid nonimmigrant visa classifications that allow participation in lawful study while in the United States.
