Additional application materials to be submitted.

The School uses a self-managed application for admission to its graduate programs. This means that it is your responsibility to prepare or collect all credentials other than official test scores and submit them at one time to the Office of Academic Assistance.

A self-managed application requires appropriate planning on your part to allow time for you to prepare the applications properly and collect all of your transcript and recommendations. This process, however, also gives you control over when your application is complete. It eliminates the need for concern over lost or misdirected applications, transcripts or recommendations.

Do not submit an incomplete application packet. Incomplete packets will not be considered for admission.

We strongly suggest that you maintain your own records by keeping a copy of your application and ordering duplicate copies of transcripts and recommendation letters.

  1. $25.00 Application Fee. You may submit non-refundable payment 
  2. Select SNHP Manual Application Fee and Reentry Application.
  3. Mail paper re-entry application.
