Rocky Vista University will only consider applications submitted via PostBacCAS, the centralized application service for Post Bac programs. The application is available at https://postbaccas.liaisoncas.com/ The application opens September 1st and closes July 15th, prior to the start of the academic year.
All application materials including transcripts and letters of recommendation are to be submitted directly through PostBacCAS. You will also pay the $50 RVU MSBS supplemental fee at the time you submit through PostBacCAS. You will be given the opportunity to select campus preference (Colorado or Southern Utah) on the application.
Completed files will be processed and reviewed on a rolling basis as long as there are seats available in the class. Early application is encouraged as our classes have filled to capacity for each of the last three years.
Upon acceptance of an offer of placement within any program within RVU, all candidates are required to complete a criminal background check and a 10-panel drug screening. This screening must meet the RVU standards, be conducted by an agency approved by RVU, and occur prior to the date specified in the matriculation agreement. Please note: though marijuana is legal in the state of Colorado, RVU adheres to federal regulations regarding recreational drug use. As such, any marijuana use is prohibited by RVU students.
An applicant who has a deficiency or abnormality discovered on either screening will be referred to the MSBS Student Performance Committee for further investigation. The MSBS SPC will make a recommendation to the MSBS Program Director as to whether the offer of admission should be maintained or withdrawn. The MSBS Program Director will make the final determination regarding the applicant’s status. Failure to complete a Criminal Background Check by the required deadline could affect the ability to matriculate or engage in RVU educational experiences.
