How to Apply

Applications for fall 2021 are closed.  The fall 2022 application will be available November 1.

Dates to Remember:

  • The priority deadline to submit an application and have all materials turned in for the 2021 cohort is February 1, 2021.
  • Students who apply after the priority deadline will be processed and accepted on a rolling basis until all spots within the program are full.

Admission to the RIBN program is extremely competitive.  It is important to start the application process early in the admissions cycle to ensure adequate amount of time to receive, review and complete all of the paperwork.  Students who apply after the priority deadline of each year will be processed and accepted on a rolling basis only as long as spots remain available in the program.  Meeting the minimum requirements for RIBN does not guarantee acceptance. 

How to Apply 

There are three separate applications that must be completed.  It is up to the student to ensure that the proper materials have been turned in for each application to the appropriate office.

1) An application to UNCP as a degree-seeking student.
