Please read all the application procedures carefully before you begin the application process.

Non Program Application Deadlines

The following deadlines apply to non program applications:

  • May 15 for Fall Session courses (September to December)
  • September 15 for Winter Session courses (January to April)
  • January 15 for Spring Session courses (May to August)

Late applications will not be reviewed and will be forwarded to the next available session.

Visiting students and prospective students who have not yet been admitted to the MHS or MN program may be permitted to register in up to two MHST or NURS* courses on a first-come, first-served basis, space permitting. Courses taken as a non program student can be applied toward the MHS or MN program requirements, if and when a student becomes a program student. Grades on courses completed as a non program student will be considered in the admission process. However, successful completion of courses as a non program student does not guarantee admission into the MHS or MN program.

*Note: Non-program students cannot register for NURS 520, NURS 522, NURS 524, NURS 526, NURS 528, NURS 530, MHST/NURS 611, MHST/NURS 719, or MHST/NURS 720.

Non-program students must meet the following application requirements:

  • a four-year health-related baccalaureate degree from an accredited university
