Students will work with their college counselor and the Rivet School Admissions team to submit their application. There will be 3 main sections to the application: 1. General Information, 2. Financial Planning, and 3. Short Answer Questions. Once a student submits, they will receive a follow email from our admissions team on next steps.
Our application deadline is June 2nd. Students are accepted on a rolling basis. Students should expect to hear a decision within 2-3 weeks of applying, and no later than June 16th.
Rivet School partners with Southern New Hampshire University, a regionally accredited nonprofit university to offer an AA in General Studies and three BA degrees in Business, Communications, and Healthcare Management.
Within each of these degrees, students can choose specific concentrations such as: Logistics & Operations, Public Administration, Management, Global Perspectives, and more. These degrees provide a broad base of generalizable skills that support students to enter into a variety of careers.
We believe that college programs should be 100% focused on doing what’s best for students. We also recognize the troubling legacy of for-profit higher education in this country.
For these reasons (and others), Rivet School is a non-profit educational program with one mission: To help you earn a job-relevant degree as efficiently as possible.
