Once the required admissions submittals have been received and are deemed in order, the application process is considered to be complete.
MBA and MM: Upon evaluating the completed application submittals, the graduate school will notify the student as to whether he/she is accepted into the MBA or MM program.
MSN: Upon evaluating the completed application submittals, the school of nursing in conjunction with the graduate school will notify the student as to whether he/she is accepted into the MSN program.
An applicant meeting the admission requirements will normally be granted regular admission into the graduate program. Probationary admission status may be granted to an applicant who does not meet all of the conditions for regular admission but provides definite evidence that a capability for graduate-level study exists.
Under Minnesota law, students need to submit a complete immunization record or meet one of the legal exemptions before being admitted to NAU. Students are exempt if they graduated from a Minnesota high school in 1997 or later, were previously enrolled in another college in Minnesota, or were born before 1956. Other exemptions include religious or philosophical objections to being immunized, in which the student needs to submit a notarized statement of his/her beliefs, or if the student has already had one of the diseases covered in the state immunization requirement. A doctor may sign an exemption if the student has another medical reason, for example, immune to the disease or currently pregnant. Please see an admissions representative for further details.
SOUTH DAKOTA STUDENTS
Under South Dakota law, students (born after 1956) who are entering a postsecondary institution in South Dakota for the first time after July 1, 2008, must submit, within 45 days after the start of classes, certification from a licensed physician that the student has received or is in the process of receiving the required two doses of immunization against measles, rubella, and mumps. As an alternative to the requirement for a physician's certification, the student may present: (1) Certification from a licensed physician stating the physical condition of the student would be such that immunization would endanger the student's life or health; (2) Certification from a licensed physician stating the student has experienced the natural disease against which the immunization protects; (3) Confirmation from a laboratory of the presence of adequate immunity; or (4) A written statement signed by the student that the student is an adherent to a religious doctrine whose teachings are opposed to such immunizations. If the student is under the age of 18, the written statement shall be signed by one parent or guardian. Please see an admissions representative for further details.
The Online MSN program is offered through NAU Distance Learning in all states except Tennessee.
