No. It is a violation of SNHU’s Academic Honesty policies to submit the same paper for two classes without prior permission from instructors. This is referred to as "Multiple Submissions" or "Self-Plagiarism".

Per the SNHU Academic Honesty Policy for the University College (UC):

Multiple Submissions: Multiple submissions is the use of work previously submitted at this or any other institution to fulfill academic requirements in another class. Slightly altered work that has been resubmitted is also considered to be fraudulent, although with prior permission, some professors may allow students to complete one assignment for two classes. In this case, prior permission from both instructors is absolutely necessary. Students must properly cite any use of their previously submitted work.”

Per the SNHU Academic Honesty Policy for the College of Online and Continuing Education (COCE):

Self-Plagiarism (Work Done for One Course and Submitted to Another): Work done for one course and submitted to another refers to work previously submitted at this or any other institution to fulfill academic requirements in another class, to include repeated classes. Slightly altered work that has been resubmitted is also considered to be fraudulent. In some instances instructors may allow a certain amount of work from a prior course to be repurposed; students who wish to do this must seek express approval from the instructor in advance. Under no circumstances will a complaint be considered if resubmitted work earns a different grade from the original submission.”
