Transfer Students

Are you ready to make a change in a new environment? UMKC advisers have created several resources to help transfer students prepare for the move and settle in to their new setting.

Pre-licensure BSN students

The UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies Pre-licensure BSN program uses a 1+3 format, which calls for students to complete one year of general education followed by three years of nursing courses with general education courses mixed in. It means students can begin studying their passion earlier than many traditional 2+2 nursing programs.

Accelerated-BSN students

We highly recommend that you attend an information session to learn the program specifics. Also, be sure to visit the Transfer Equivalencies site to be certain that you take the correct equivalent courses.

Information Sessions

Information sessions for the Accelerated and Pre-licensure BSN programs are held monthly at the Health Sciences Building. Please visit our events page for more information or call 816-235-1700 for more information.
