Applying

When you are ready, you have two options:

An application fee of $75 is required and can be paid by credit card, check, money order, or electronic check.

SU Application fees are waived ONLY for PPIA Fellows, Pickering Scholars, and McNair Scholars. To qualify, McNair scholars must submit a letter of recommendation from their program administrator. PPIA Fellows must submit JSI evaluations with their application.  

Unfortunately, we are NOT ABLE to waive the application fee for any other students. The structure of the university would require that our department pay any waived fees to the central applications processing unit. We prefer to utilize our department resources for financial aid for students entering our programs. We hope you understand our dilemma and why we have chosen not to approve such requests.
