1. Download the application instructions. Read these instructions completely before you begin and have them with you as you complete the application.
2. Be sure to give yourself ample time to complete the entire process. In order to complete the final section, you will need to obtain a letter of recommendation from a department chair, professor, or academic adviser, a valid enrollment verification or certificate of graduation/copy of degree if you are recent graduate, and an official transcript (or transcripts printed on heat-sensitive security paper) to later be scanned and uploaded to your online application. You do not need to use our enrollment verification form if your institution provides one that includes all the required information from our form. Please make sure to redact any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) like your social security number (SSN) and date of birth from uploaded documents.
Note: It typically takes about 2-4 weeks for universities to process requests for official documents like these, so we strongly recommend that you initiate such requests as soon as possible. Please reference the application instructions for details on what constitutes valid documentation. If your uploaded documents are invalid or contain personal identifiable information, HNIP staff will remove the documents from your application and ask you to resubmit.
3. Do not use your browser's "Back" button while you are working on your application. Doing so will corrupt the information you've entered and will delay or prevent the processing of your application. You will have an opportunity to make changes to various sections of the application once you've complete all sections.
