Upon admittance into the program, students must submit a confirmation fee, which serves as acceptance of the seat in the UIW DNP program. The $500 deposit is required within the time frame designated by the acceptance letter in order to hold and confirm the spot in the entering class. The full fee is non-refundable if a student decides not to attend UIW. Upon confirmed entry into the program and two weeks after the first day of class, $400 will be applied to the student's UIW account.
