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 into 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.
