Application Process

Application and Admission

Admission into graduate programs is regulated by the Graduate School. Information concerning the process is available through the Online Graduate Catalog. Information on admission requirements is available at our Admissions page.

Application for the Masters of Education program must be received by February 15 to be considered for summer semester start of each cohort. Notice of acceptance will be completed by April 1.

In addition to the Graduate School requirements, both Curriculum & Instruction and Educational Administration require two letters of recommendation.

Students who do not meet the Graduate School deadline for admissions into programs may still be admitted, but the Graduated School cannot guarantee that paperwork will be processed. Students can also be accepted with Special Student Status. Students who are accepted with Special Student Status are not eligible for financial aid.
