Application Requirements

Start the online application process now! Required materials to submit with application:

  • Transcripts of all university/community college work (we would like to see at least a 3.0 GPA*, but will look at other materials if you fall below).
  • Two letters of professional recommendation speaking to the applicant’s success and/or potential as a professional teacher of students in grades preK-12 and potential for success as a graduate student.
  • Resume.
  • Written statement of application to the M.S. in Education in which you write 2-3 pages detailing why you seek to enroll in this program (e.g. what are your short and long-term goals; what past experiences have led you to this decision, etc.). 

*Applicants who do not meet all the above admission criteria (e.g. fall short on GPA or below certain test scores) may still apply, but evaluation of such applicants may require additional compensatory application materials (e.g. an interview with program area faculty; and/or documentation of successful teaching experience; and/or professional work or life experiences that attest to personal growth and potential in graduate studies, beyond that represented by test scores or GPA). You will be contacted after you apply if we wish for you to submit additional materials.
