Additional Information to Note:
- Ensure that all required application documents are recieved by the deadline. It is the responsibility of the applicant, not that of TTUHSC, to make sure that your application is complete and submitted. We will not contact you for missing items. The Merlin application will not show a status until after decisions are made and emails have been sent.
- If you already have your MSN degree and are interested in applying for the post-master's certificate program, you will need to follow a different application process which is outlined on the websites for the post-master's tracks.
* Application fees are non-refundable and it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that the correct program and track is selected.
