Extension Fee
The date selected (on the application form) by the applicant organization for documentation submission is confirmed once the application is processed by the Magnet program office. The date selected is significant and is considered a reservation for your documentation submission. Specific coordination of scheduled conference calls and communication centers around this date. The date is also used by the Magnet office to assure timely communication about the application phase and to prepare the organization for documentation submission, including selection of the appraisal team. If at a later time the organization decides to change the documentation submission date an extension may be requested. A fee of $7,500.00 is assessed. The extension is for one time only and the new date for submission must be within 6 months of the previous scheduled date (for Magnet designated organizations) and up to one year for new applicants. The new submission date can only be selected from the established submission dates indicated on the website: February, April, June, August, or October, first day of the month, unless it falls on a weekend or holiday, then the next available business day applies.  Extension requests must be submitted no later than two months prior to the current scheduled documentation submission date. Organizations with a submission date in 2017 and 2018 who wish to extend into 2019 will be required to submit under the 2019 Magnet® Application Manual.
