Deadiwënöhsnye’s Gëjóhgwa’ (Seneca Immersion Group) Admissions Process

Nya:wëh Sgë:nö’!

Welcome to the Deadiwënöhsnye’s Gëjóhgwa’ Admissions page.

In order to gain entrance into the Immersion Program, you will need to pass the Admissions Test and have ALL application materials submitted by the required deadline (TBD).

All applications must be submitted to SNI Human Resources and must include the following:

○ Cover Letter (tell us why you would like to be part of the program)

○ Resume

○ 3 Work References (Name, Official Title, and Contact Info)

Our program director will contact you to schedule an Admissions Test and testing will take place in an Immersion Program facility.

You will need to be familiar with the Red, Blue, and Purple pronouns of “-nöe’s-” (to like) in order to pass the Admissions Test. The test will be given orally (reading and writing are not required) and it will be a timed test.

An exam administrator will provide a Seneca word for which you will then provide the English equivalent. You will then be given an English word and must then respond with the Seneca equivalent.

Your total exam time and all submitted application materials will be used to determine admittance into the program.

A printable PDF and Audio recordings of the Admissions Test Answers for self study are found below.

Thank you very much for your interest in our program. We look forward to hearing from you!
