Nya:wëh Sgë:nö’!

Welcome to the Deadiwënöhsnye’s Gëjóhgwa’ admission’s page.

There is no prerequisite for entrance into the program, however, you will need to pass the Admissions Test and have ALL application materials submitted by the deadline (tentatively set for July 31, 2016).

Additional Application Materials needed:

-Cover Letter (telling us why you would like to be part of the program)
-Resume
-3 Work References (Name, Official Title, and Contact Information is sufficient)

You may submit this material via email to brandon.martin@sni.org

You will need to memorize the Red, Blue, and Purple forms of “nöe’s (like)” in order to take and pass the Admissions Test. To view the test in PDF format please click here : Immersion Admission Test Answers. Testing will be administered orally; therefore, there will be no need to learn reading and writing of the test words provided. You will have two administrators during testing. The test will also be timed.

The exam administrators will provide the Seneca phrase, and you will be expected to provide the English equivalent. You will then be provided the English phrase and must give the Seneca equivalent. In order to gain entrance into the program, all responses must be correct to pass the test. Other factors considered in your entrance to the program will be the test time of your responses as well as the contents of your resume.

When you feel you are ready to take the Admissions Test, then contact using the contact information below to schedule an appointment to take the test.
