Application Information

Students apply to the NPL and the MSSP simultaneously fulfilling the application requirements for each degree program and indicating an interest in the MSSP/NPL. Upon acceptance into the MSSP and NPL programs, the applicant will be admitted to the dual degree program. Students may use the same letters of recommendation providing the referees address the dual degree interests.

Tuition and Financial Aid

Students pay tuition to SP2 throughout their program. Both programs offer limited tuition scholarship support for meritorious students and accounts for financial need. SP2 makes funding decisions based solely on the information in the application for admission. Students are notified on funding decisions at the point of admission. Awards will be applied in consideration of the dual degree.
