The core faculty in administration and supervision meet throughout the year to consider applications. The deadlines for submitting a complete application, transcripts, GRE scores, and letters of recommendation are December 1 for the spring semester, April 1 for the summer, and July 1 for the fall. Applicants for financial assistance should complete their applications by February 15 to ensure consideration for the following academic year. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

While the various programs in the Administration and Supervision Program lead to certification as a principal or superintendent in New Hampshire, the state may require that the applicant for an administrative credential pass a state mandated test. The State Department of Education requires that all applicants for a credential pass the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PRAXIS I). Please contact the State Department of Education for further information regarding the state mandated test.
