What will I learn?

UMSL Cyber Start Grant for Fall 2020 - Under this scheme, F1 international students who are unable to report to campus this fall due to COVID19 are able to pay a reduced rate of tuition. • This will only be for the Fall 2020 semester as the students should be on campus in Spring 2021 paying regular rates. • Any UMSL Global scholarship awarded for Fall 2020 would be deferred until Spring 2021. • Students must be enrolled in a degree program conducive to online learning.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing program is offered in both a traditional full-time path and in an accelerated path. The traditional program requires 120-credit hours, including two years of general education requirements and two years of clinical courses. The accelerated program is designed for qualified individuals who hold earned Bachelor’s degrees in non-nursing fields, or outstanding students who have completed all prescribed general education and science course work, and allows students to complete their courses in just 12 months.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing, RN-BSN program is designed for students who already have an RN license and is offered 100% online. Coursework can be completed in five semesters, taking 1-2 courses per semester.
