Additional Information:

Applicants interested in any of the School of Nursing and Health Studies’ (SONHS) baccalaureate programs are encouraged to speak with a representative from the SONHS’ Office of Student Services (OSS) and/or the UM’s Office of Admission.

In accepting students into the BSHS program, the UM does not in any way ensure admittance into professional graduate programs. Admission to professional graduate programs is dependent upon strong undergraduate academic performance and appropriate, well-rounded extracurricular experiences. Admission to these programs is determined independently by the school or program to which the student applies.

More information about the BSHS program and the SONHS may be found in the Academic Bulletin and the Student Handbook.
