International Applicants

Due to several distance-education components of this program, MUSC is unable to issue- I-20 forms to allow students to obtain F-1 student visas. Only U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and those holding other valid U.S. visas will be accepted.

Accelerated BSN Student Confirmation Fee

The Accelerated BSN program at MUSC is one of the top programs in the country with a competitive entry, particularly for out-of-state students. Because there is a large out-of-state applicant pool and we have limited enrollment, we must be assured that those out-of-state students who are accepted to our program actually attend.  Therefore all out-of-state students who matriculate are required to pay a one time, non-refundable confirmation fee of $1,000 that will be applied directly to the student’s first semester tuition charges.  The deposit confirms the intention of the accepted out-of-state applicant to enroll and secures a place in the Accelerated BSN program.  The confirmation fee for accepted out-of-state students is due by the date stipulated in the program acceptance letter and is non-refundable.  If a student pays the confirmation fee and does not enroll in the program, the confirmation fee is forfeited.
