How to Apply

Step 1 Apply Online
Step 2 Send Transcripts

An official transcript is required from each College/University where credits were earned and used toward one’s undergraduate degree, directly or by way of credit transfer.

Once you have submitted an application, you will be personally contacted by an admissions representative within 48 hours. We will answer any questions at that time and get you started on your enrollment track. Space is limited, groups fill rapidly, so prompt enrollment is always encouraged.

Official transcripts must have the seal of granting university, and be sealed in an unopened official university envelope. E-Transcripts may also be sent electronically by the previous institution to pgs@snu.edu .

For Bethany, Online, and Tulsa courses, send official transcripts to:
SNU School of Professional Studies
6729 NW 39th Expressway
Bethany, OK 73008

Entrance Guidelines

As adults, you have accumulated a variety of life learning experiences, and at SNU you can receive college credit for what you have learned from those experiences. With this in mind, we feel that learners under the age of 25 could be at a disadvantage. Therefore, learners who are under 25 years of age and are entering a degree completion program or are 23 years of age and are taking accelerated general education courses must meet the following guidelines: Have a minimum of two years of significant full-time work experience beyond high school and submit three letters of recommendation.

Credit Hours

In order to be accepted into one of the degree completion programs, learners need a minimum of 60 transferable credit hours from a regionally accredited institution. If you do not have the required 60 credit hours you are eligible to take general education courses.

A total of 88 credit hours can be transferred from regionally accredited institutions. A maximum of 62 hours can be accepted from two-year institutions. Zero (remedial) level courses are not transferable.
