Application Process
  1. Pick a degree program and term using the tabs and submit the appropriate online application with your fee ($35 undergraduate, $50 graduate).
  2. Have original transcripts for ALL college-level work sent to the School. You may use the Transcript Request Form for non-UR transcripts.
  3. Review financial aid requirements: Submit the FAFSA, contact the Financial Aid Office and apply for SPCS scholarships.
  4. Make arrangements to submit required supporting materials. Requirements vary by program and are detailed in the online application.

Please budget plenty of time for other institutions to submit transcripts and to put financial aid plans in order. These items commonly delay admissions decisions and enrollment, so early action is important.
