A BA or BS degree in any field from an accredited college or university is also required. Please see the complete Admission Requirements for the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program.
First Class at CMU - Dual Credit
The First Class at CMU (dual credit) program provides the opportunity for qualified high school students to enroll in approved classes that are taught in their local high school in compliance with the Coordinating Board of Higher Education guidelines for dual-credit programs. When students successfully complete a course, they receive both high school and college credit. The program allows students to get an early start in fulfilling college requirements.
Credit earned in the program will be applicable at Central Methodist University and is generally transferable to other accredited colleges and universities. It is the students responsibility to ascertain the transferability of any course taken through the program. Students can best accomplish this by directly contacting colleges and departments to which they are considering transferring credit.
