Technical Standards for Admission, Progression and Graduation
Applications are reviewed once each year for the DNP program, for both the post-baccalaureate and post-master’s points of entry. The final deadline for submission is March 31, and students, who submit their applications during this time, will be notified shortly thereafter of their acceptance. The program begins in August each year. If the application deadline is on a weekend, then the application deadline is on the first business day of the month. When applying, all parts to the application, including any supplemental materials, must be received by the deadline.
Applications are available online beginning July 1, one year prior to the year of admission. Applications received less than two weeks prior to the deadline cannot be assured of adequate time for notification of any missing or incomplete documents.
