Admission into the College of Health Sciences varies from school to school and from undergraduate to graduate programs. Regardless of the program you are interested in, we want to make the admission process as seamless as possible. Here you’ll find links to specific detail for each program, as well as contacts should you have any questions.

Undergraduate and Graduate Admission

For all undergraduate programs, you must apply first to Samford University through the Office of Admission. To enter the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing, you must also apply for admission directly to the nursing school once you’ve been admitted to Samford University.

Athletic Training, a degree program in the School of Health Professions, also requires a second admission process beyond admission into the University.

For admission to any of our graduate programs, you apply directly to the individual schools. Admission requirements vary by program, but you can learn more about the specific requirements by speaking with the appropriate contact person in each program.
