**Your admission letter may indicate that your status is provisional. If this is the case, your provisional status will change to active admission status, once all general education courses are transcripted at UCM and completion of all admission requirements for clinical courses (e.g. CBC, immunizations, active RN license, etc.) are met. A student may not take any clinical courses without having active admission status. Taking actions necessary to clear provisional admission status is the sole responsibility of the student. Contact the School of Nursing at 660-543-8736 for verification.
The General Education Program requirements can be found online at catalog.ucmo.edu.
Students who transfer to UCM with an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree or a bachelor’s degree from an appropriately regionally accredited institution are considered to have met UCM’s 42-hour general education program.
