Declaring Your Major in Health Sciences

The BHS in Health Sciences program does not require an application. Current Mizzou students interested in declaring the Health Science major must attend a Transfer of Division session. Transfer of Division sessions are offered Mondays at 3pm and Thursdays at 11am in 101 Lewis Hall (no RSVP required). There is a 2.0 MU and cumulative GPA requirement to declare a major in Health Sciences. The cumulative GPA is calculated on all MU and transfer coursework.

Residency Requirement

There is a residency requirement for Health Sciences majors. Students must complete, at minimum, the 30 hours of coursework for the degree as declared Health Sciences majors in the School of Health Professions. Students must be in the Health Sciences major at the beginning of a semester in order to include the hours in the residency requirement. Residency requirement hours for students transferring into the major during the semester will begin the following semester.


Advising for health science students is done in the School of Health Professions Student Services Office. Students need to schedule appointments to see their academic adviser. Current Mizzou students can schedule an appointment with their adviser through MU Connect.
