Application Information

Students should apply for submatriculation by May 1st of their sophomore or junior year.

Submatriculants remain eligible for undergraduate financial aid for the normal eight (8) semesters of the BA program. Submatriculants are not eligible to receive scholarships from SP2. They may, however, apply for federal student financial aid.

Course of Study

An individual plan of study will be prepared and agreed upon by the appropriate College advisor and SP2 to assure the integrity of both degree programs. The summer after graduation from the College, each student must complete a full-time practicum before they start their final fall semester of study.

Typical Education Plan for the Submatric Option for Sophomores

Sophomore Year: Make formal application to the NPL submatriculation program.
Junior Year: Take one NPLD class for each fall and spring semester.
Senior Year: Take a combined two to three NPLD classes in the fall and spring semesters in consultation with the NPL academic advisor.
Summer: After senior year, take one graduate level summer class and complete a practicum with a nonprofit organization.
Fall Semester after BA: Take remaining NPLD classes required to complete the degree in December.

Typical Education Plan for the Submatric Option for Juniors

Junior Year: Make formal application to the NPL submatriculation program.
Senior Year: Take two NPLD classes for each fall and spring semester in consultation with the NPL academic advisor.
Summer: After senior year, take one graduate level summer class and complete a practicum with a nonprofit organization.
Fall Semester after BA: Take remaining NPLD classes required to complete degree in December.

The College allows up to four (4) courses from outside the School of Arts & Sciences to count toward the undergraduate degree. Thus, four (4) courses from SP2 can be used in this way and be “double counted” toward the course requirements in the NPL.
