You must meet the established requirements for both the FHSU Graduate School and the Building Leadership (Principal) program. However, the requirements differ somewhat, depending on whether you are non-degree (endorsement) or degree seeking.
If you choose to pursue the Building Principal endorsement option, you must apply to the FHSU Graduate School as a non-degree seeking student.
Please fill out an application online and meet the
