Previously admitted students who withdrew need to reapply to MSUM and to the School of Nursing. If you reapply to the School of Nursing the semester after withdrawing, you must also reapply to MSUM unless you are enrolled in a non-nursing course.
Two separate application processes must be completed:
The Homeland Security Act of 2002 fundamentally changed the requirements for the international students who wish to study in the United States. The major change that affects an online program is that no more than the equivalent of one online/distance education class or 3 credits per session may count towards the "full course of study" requirement. A full copy of the NAFSA (Association of International Educators) Advisory Manual is available through the International Student Affairs Office [Chapter 3: F-1 Students; Section 3.20.7; Authority cite 8 C.F.R. SS 214.2(f) (6) (i) (G)]. Students are able to be admitted to this program if they have an active Work Visa. Students are unable to be admitted to this program if they have a Student Visa.
Orientation to the online RN to BSN (RNB) program will be held prior to the first semester you begin for all newly admitted students. This one-day event takes place at MSUM and NHCC at the beginning of the first semester you enter the RNB program.
This orientation is very important, especially for those new to web-based learning. The MSUM nursing program is discussed in detail, students learn how to navigate the library from home and registration procedures, are introduced to the instructional management system (D2L Brightspace), and meet with their advisors.
