Important New Student Items
Please read below about various compliance items that are required for new students. We encourage you to get a step ahead prior to the start of classes on August 23, 2016, so the process will be smoother and less stressful on you. Please check back here frequently for updates.
Student ID Badges
MUSC ID Badges are required. Beginning summer 2016, please use the following guidelines:
New Students must submit a photograph to MUSC Department of Public Safety prior to orientation to streamline their check-in process. The photo must meet the following requirements for approval and be submitted no later than 12:00 pm on the Friday two weeks before orientation:
• Color photo
• Background must be a solid color, preferably of a lighter shade
• Must be a frontal view, cropped from the shoulders up to include the full head. No side views.
• No other person or objects in the photo (eyeglasses are acceptable, no sunglasses or hats)
• Format can only be JPG or JPEG.
• Any subsequent uploads will overwrite the previous one.
• All replacement badges will incur a $15 replacement fee.
MUSC Department of Public Safety will email you confirming that your photograph has been approved.
If you are experiencing issues, please contact MUSC Department of Public Safety by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
To get started, go to student portal: https://life.musc.edu

Badges are required for access to most MUSC buildings and in clinical areas. Badges will be distributed at New Student Orientation.
MSN, DNP and PHD students are not allowed to have credentials on their MUSC College of Nursing student badge.
NetID and MUSC Email
Once you've matriculated, you will receive an email about your NetID which provides you access to computers and servers on MUSC's campus-wide network. It is sent to the personal email address that was indicated on your application. Please make sure to check your spam email folder in case it was recognized as that. After 48 hours of the first email, you will receive another email with your password. There will be instructions in that email about how to activate your NetID. Once you activate your NetID, you will get a third email which contains information about your MUSC email account and other important web sites. If you are already a MUSC employee, you can use your current NetID. If you graduated from the BSN program, you NetID will remain the same. If you have questions about the process, please send an email to email@example.com. You must have your NetID activated prior to orientation and to have access to E-Value, Moodlerooms, WebAdvisor, and MyQuest (all listed below.)
Please make sure to check your MUSC email once you have gotten notification that your account has been set-up. You can check MUSC email by going to this link https://exchange.musc.edu/
WebAdvisor allows you to access information about your academic career contained within the MUSC administrative database. This is where you can check your student accounting information, course schedule, as well as your plan of study. The link to WebAdvisor is https://webadvisor.musc.edu/.
Moodlerooms is the online management system for the College of Nursing that you will use to access your courses. A self-paced orientation of Moodlerooms must be completed prior to August 20th. Please log into Moodle using your NetID and password at http://moodle.musc.edu/. The courses are called Graduate Student Training and Orientation Prep. You will not have access to your fall courses until these courses are complete. ALL students must complete this even if you are a previous MUSC student.
E*Value is an online software system/database that is used by students to upload necessary forms and requirements that are to be tracked by the College of Nursing. It is also used for students to complete online evaluations for courses and instructors. You will have access to E*Value at a later date, at which time you will be notified via email. You can log into E*Value at http://evalue.musc.edu with your NetID and Password. Please do not upload any items into E-Value until instructions are provided to you by our Compliance and Evaluation Officer, Gena Ryan.
The following requirements must be uploaded to E*Value:
Severe Weather Form and Student Waiver Form
ALL students are required to complete and upload into E*Value the Severe Weather form and Student Waiver form indicating that you have read the Student Handbook and know where to access it when updates are made. The College of Nursing Student Handbook is located here.
BLS/CPR Card from the American Heart Association
All students must have a current BLS Certification while enrolled at the College of Nursing. To ensure appropriate level of safe care and professional responsibility to clinical sites, all College of Nursing students must be BLS certified as a Health Care Provider through the American Heart Association (AHA). Courses can be scheduled through the students’ local American Heart Association organization. The AHA does provide an alternate method to classroom BLS. The student registers for BLS Part 1 from www.onlineaha.org. Once the course is completed, the participant must schedule a skills check-off with an authorized AHA BLS Instructor. The only AHA equivalent organization accepted is through the Military Training Network.
Please click here for more information.
A copy of your current RN license must be uploaded E*Value. Online students must have a current license in the state where they are completing their clinicals. SC RN licenses can be pulled up at SC License Lookup. A copy of this is acceptable as your RN license. If you live outside SC, you can also download a license verification through https://www.nursys.com/.
MyQuest Compliance Module
All College of Nursing students must complete MyQuest compliance modules. You will be sent an email to your MUSC email account once these modules are available for you to complete. These modules are completed annually after you are enrolled.
Student Health Packet
All students entering the Medical University of South Carolina must provide proof of immunizations and are required to have health insurance in the event of illness or injury. Please click here for requirements and instructions. Students not meeting these requirements will not be enrolled in classes or able to attend clinical. If you are currently a MUSC employee, you must have your files transferred from Employee Health Services to Student Health Services (they will not automatically do this for you.) For more information, please refer to the Student Health Services website.
Drug Screen Test
A nine panel drug screen test is required for ALL College of Nursing students, including prior MUSC students. Once you have matriculated, you will be able to schedule a drug test through Employee Health Services. If you are an out of state student and cannot come to campus to complete your drug screen, please email Gena Ryan your full name, home address, phone number and driver’s license number and we will get a packet sent to you with information on where you can get your drug screen completed. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition is due August 22, 2016. The 2016-2017 Academic Charges Schedule is available here. The highlighted gray portions are the fees MSN and DNP students will be charged depending on full or part-time status. There will be a representative from financial aid speaking at orientation to help answer some of your questions, but it is highly suggested you complete a FAFSA form and have the financial aid office process it prior to orientation. Their office number is (843)792-2536.
Methods of Payment
Please click here for the Student Accounting brochure which explains acceptable methods of payment.
You can find information for many of these offices on the College of Nursing Campus Resources page at http://academicdepartments.musc.edu/nursing/administration/studentservices/campus_resources.htm
