The deadline for receipt of all application materials is January 15 to be considered for the following fall semester.
To be considered for admission to the doctoral program in nursing, applicants must:
Admission requirements are not weighted. All requirements must be fulfilled and the applicant’s dossier complete before interviews are scheduled with faculty members. Following interviews, the admission committee determines each applicant’s admission to the program.
Financial aid for tuition is available in the form of the new Federal Faculty Loan Program and graduate assistantships.
If a company will pay the University directly regardless of the student’s grades, an authorization from the employer must be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Services at the time of registration. The student is required to pay all tuition and fee charges not covered by their employer at the time of registration. Students may participate in this program as long as payment is not contingent upon successful course completion.
Students who will be reimbursed by their employer only after a grade is received must present an official letter of intent from their employer, specifying the tuition and fees covered. The student will be required to pay all remaining tuition and fees and the $75 reimbursement deferment at the time of registration.
Students should ask their employer or union about participation in either of these programs.
