It’s easy to apply to take Online courses at SNHU. The steps you’ll take depend on whether you’re applying to an undergraduate program, a graduate program or a military program.

Apply to the Undergraduate Program

First, submit the SNHU online undergraduate application (There is no application fee for undergraduate applicants).

Then, complete a Transcript Request Release Form to allow us to retrieve your US transcripts directly from your previous institutions. Transcripts are required from all previously attended institutions. (You must request international transcripts directly from the institution.)

Finally, submit an Attestation Form certifying that you have a high school diploma or GED.

You can also explore your financial aid options. Check with your employer about tuition reimbursement, or find out about grants, loans, and scholarships through SNHU’s financial aid office.

International Undergraduate Applicants

Those whose native language is not English must provide SNHU with a proof of English proficiency (TOEFL scores) as part of admission requirements. SNHU code is 3649.

  • 530 minimum or better on paper-based TOEFL (equivalent to 6.0 IELTS)

Apply to the Graduate Program

Admission Requirements

Acceptance decisions are made on a rolling basis throughout the year for our five graduate terms. You can apply at any time and get a decision within days of submitting all required materials. To apply, simply contact an admission counselor, who can help you explore financial options.  Your counselor can also walk you through the application process, which involves completing a graduate application ($40 fee) and providing undergraduate transcripts.

A resume is also required for most graduate programs. Please note that some programs (i.e. nursing, education, arts) may require additional materials. Contact an admission counselor today.
