HNC Application Deadline

The HNC Application, Monday, February 1, is right around the corner!  Make sure you submit your online application by 11:59pm EST on that date.

Digital or hard copy official transcripts are a required portion of your application. The quickest way to have official transcripts arrive in our office is to have your undergraduate university send an electronic copy to However, if you have a copy of your transcripts on hand, you can email a PDF of them to us to complete your application. Please note that if you are admitted, we will then require that an official transcript be sent directly from your undergraduate institution.  

Test Scores
STAMP Chinese Proficiency Test
If you take the STAMP test right before the deadline and have not yet received your results, you can leave this section blank and still submit your application before February 1. We keep an official record of your STAMP score on file.

It can take 2-3 weeks for official GRE/GMAT scores to arrive to our office. If you have recently taken the GRE, it is likely we will not receive your scores until after the deadline. In this case, we recommend that you include the unofficial scores which you received upon completion of the test on the HNC application.

As long as you have requested your test scores and indicated your scores on your application, you can submit your online application.

Hit that Submit Button!
One of the last steps in the application process is to pay the $85 application fee, but once that's done you can't rest yet!  Be sure you hit the final submit button AFTER paying the fee, otherwise you risk your application not being reviewed by the admissions committee.  Past applicants have missed this last step, so it's definitely something you'll want to pay attention to.

What’s next?
Over the next couple of weeks, the HNC Admissions team will be reviewing your applications. If you are missing application requirements, an Admissions Representative will contact you. Please be patient! We are not able to answer individual confirmations for test scores, transcripts or letters of recommendation.

In Mid-March, you will receive your admissions decision and financial aid award.

Good luck and we look forward to reading your applications!
