DNP Admissions

Students seeking admission into the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) must meet the admission requirements of both the Graduate School and the UTC School of Nursing DNP Program.

  1. First, apply to the Graduate School.  Please ensure all transcripts and GRE or MAT scores are sent to the Graduate School.

    Apply to the Graduate School

  2.  Next, submit an online application to the School of Nursing.  Applicants must have the appropriate degree from a program accredited by the National League for Nursing or the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA on a 4.0 scale, and documentation of all items requested as part of the application.

    Apply to the School of Nursing



On-campus interviews for those selected will be scheduled during the fall, and orientation for those admitted will occur in December.  The entry term for all DNP students is the Spring semester, which begins in January.

Once admitted, a $500 non-refundable seat fee (payable by money order or cashiers’ check only) is required of all students. This fee will later be applied to tuition but is forfeited by those who do not enroll in the first semester. Those who do not enroll will also need to reapply for admission consideration at a later time and may be subject to an additional seat fee.
