Dos and Don’ts of the Application Process

Are you applying to UMSON? This session will guide applicants on what they should and should not do during the application process to ensure they are submitting a competitive application with all required items and prerequisite courses prior to the deadline. 


How to Ace Your Letter of Recommendation

This session will help applicants understand the requirements for letters of recommendation (academic vs. professional) and how to send the recommendation request via the dashboard.


Using the Unofficial Transcript Evaluation Service

Before you begin the admissions process, you can submit copies of your unofficial transcript(s) to us for review, and an admissions counselor will advise you on your requirements for admission. This session will walk applicants through filling out the unofficial transcript evaluation form. 


Prerequisites: Transferring Your Credits

This session for BSN, RN-to-BSN, and RN-to-MSN applicants focuses on the prerequisite course list, coursework requirements, selecting the right course, and applying with courses in progress.


International Applicants: Applying 101 

This session provides detailed information about the additional supplemental items that are required to complete an application for both international applicants and applicants without a degree from a U.S. high school, college, or university.


Student Life and Resources for Undergraduates

Student life at UMSON isn't limited to the classroom. Join us to hear about resources to help you get involved in our community, develop personally and professionally, and have your voice heard. Topics will include support services, leadership development, and recreational opportunities.
