Prospective students need to meet the University of Missouri's transfer admissions requirements in order to receive admission to MU. The BHS online program does not require a separate application so please visit the MU Admissions website for full details, questions, and to apply: http://admissions.missouri.edu/apply/transfer/index.php
Here are few main requirements, but please check with Admission for full details:
Once admitted to the University and the Health Sciences online program, students must maintain the 2.0 GPA, term and cumulative, to remain in the Health Sciences program. Students who fail to achieve that GPA may stay in the program for one probationary semester. If the 2.0 term or cumulative GPA is not achieved after one probation semester, students must transfer out of the Health Sciences program.
Send all application materials to:
Office of Admissions
230 Jesse Hall
Columbia, MO 65211
Any questions about the application procedure should be directed to the Admissions Office at 573-882-7786 or toll-free at 1-800-225-6075.
You may be wondering: How much credit will Health Sciences program accept and for what specific courses? This depends on past credit, accredited institutions, and transfer equivalencies to MU.
The Admissions office will determine the transfer credit once they receive your official transcripts and application. They will then evaluate the credit and post them for you to view in myZou.missouri.edu.
Prior to applying, please refer to the advising sheet and curriculum requirements of the program to see what courses you may still need. First, be sure you meet the MU Admissions requirements before considering applying (see information above).
Coursework completed at regionally accredited four-year institutions and community/junior colleges will be accepted without limitation. However, transfer students must complete all coursework required for the Health Sciences program, including MU general education requirements. Keep in mind that MU does require the last 30 of 36 college credit hours be taken at MU. Therefore, 30 hours will be the absolute minimum course credits you will have to take at MU. You will still be required to fulfill all general education requirements and Health Science specific coursework, so this will likely exceed the 30 credit hour minimum.
