Individuals interested in pursuing admission to Swedish Institute will:
- Complete an Application for Admission and pay any required application fee (the Nursing program currently requires a $50 application fee). Provide, at a minimum, a copy of a high school transcript, diploma or GED certificate*.
- Be interviewed by an admissions officer. Under certain circumstances, including those programs with limited enrollment (Nursing and Surgical Technologist), a second interview by the program dean may be required.
- Complete written responses to an admissions survey/personal statement.
- Take any required pre-admission test.
- Complete any required criminal background check.
- Apply for financial aid, if applicable.
- Attest to the completion of the MMR**, meningitis and hepatitis B immunization requirements (see Immunization Requirements). The meningitis and hepatitis B requirements may be declined in writing.
Following completion of these steps, an enrollment agreement is signed and a student may register for classes.
*Although Swedish Institute will accept a copy of a high school diploma for purposes of enrollment, by the end of the first term of study, the college must receive an official copy of a transcript directly from the high school or must see an original, signed copy of the High School diploma.
**Students have until end the end of the two-week Drop-Add period of the first term to provide the MMR immunization documentation. Failure to provide it by that time will result in withdrawal and deferral of the class start to a later term.
