For admission to either a degree or a non-degree program, whether on campus or by distance learning, the minimum qualification is a regionally accredited baccalaureate degree with appropriate preparation for the proposed program. Each program has its own admissions criteria. The Academic Profile Code (APC) is only one element of the admissions criteria used to evaluate applicants for admission to NPS. The school requires submission of official transcripts covering all college work (undergraduate and graduate) completed to date. It is recommended that applicants apply and submit all required materials at least six months prior to the estimated arrival date, or corresponding graduate education selection board. Any delay in the arrival of necessary documentation to include official transcripts will impede the evaluation for admissions.
