Application Fee

Each application must be accompanied by a $30 (U.S.) application fee. Personal checks are the preferred form of payment, but money orders are also accepted.

Checks should be made payable to Weber State University. Please make sure your name is clearly written on your check. Applications will not be reviewed until payment is received.

Application to the HSA Graduate Certificate program and application to Weber State University are separate processes. International applicants must submit all application materials to the HSA Graduate Certificate program and to Weber State University at least 60 days prior to their proposed date of entry to the program in order to allow for international admission requirements.

Other applicants may wish to wait until an HSA Graduate Certificate admission decision is made before applying for admission to the university. Once accepted into the HSA Graduate Certificate program, successful applicants can then apply for admission to Weber State University.


Applicants should enclose a current resume with the application form. The resume should include telephone numbers and an e-mail address as well as a summary of educational background and work experience.

Application Submission

Applicants are responsible for submitting a complete application by mail. If your application is incomplete at the time of submission, it will be held until missing items are submitted.

Notification of Admissions Decision

Each application is reviewed in depth by the HSA Graduate Certificate Admissions Committee. Decisions are made only after thoughtful weighing of all the evidence provided to us by each candidate and with careful consideration given to the overall balance of participants we seek for the HSA Graduate Certificate Program.


Official transcripts of your academic record should be submitted with your application to the HSA Graduate Certificate program. Because you will submit these copies directly to the HSA Graduate Certificate Admissions Committee, you should leave the transcipts in the sealed envelopes in which you receive them.

International applicants must be able to speak, write, and comprehend English fluently.
