College of Education


Graduate Applicants

If you know you'd like to get a master's degree, doctorate or certificate from our college but aren't sure which program is the best fit for you, we can help. Our Office of Student Services staff can meet with you regardless of current work or study experience and discuss the careers you can explore with our programs, including teaching, administration, school counseling, research, athletic training and physical education.

Online programs

Our graduate-level programs include four accelerated, highly focused online programs that can be tailored to meet your individual interests or career goals and may be more cost-effective than a traditional on-campus program.

Online programs include the Master of Education in Teaching, Master of Education in Education Administration, Master of Education in Education Technology and Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction. You can learn additional information about the application process and requirements for these programs in the Online Education section of our site.

Graduate Degrees and Certificates

To apply to any College of Education master's, doctoral or certificate programs, you will be directed to The Graduate School, which handles the admissions process.

The application process and requirements for each of our graduate-level programs are different and tailored to each program. However, requirements will likely include official transcripts from each school you've attended, letters of recommendation and typically the scores of a standardized test: either the Miller Analogies Test or Graduate Record Examination, depending on the program. Some programs also require a letter of intent, a resume or a writing sample of a scholarly paper.

After your application is submitted to The Graduate School, it is sent to our College of Education faculty for review. Most of our master's programs have rolling admission, which means as soon as the file is received, faculty members will review it and make a recommendation to The Graduate School. Most of our doctoral programs have one or two admissions periods per year. After our faculty members review your application, they will make their recommendation to The Graduate School. The Graduate School considers the recommendations of our faculty and decides if prospective students will be accepted into a College of Education program.
