Admission to the program requires the applicant to have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited four-year college or university, an undergraduate cumulative grade point average of 2.75 or better on a 4.0 scale.

Applicants for the Non-licensure or Career and Technical Education Concentrations may be considered for conditional admission with a lower grade point average or MAT/GRE score. Non-licensure applicants whose grade point averages or standardized test scores are below those normally expected for admission, which may result in their admission being denied, may be given further consideration for admission to the M.Ed. program if the student provides the following: (a) an acceptable work record (a resume or curriculum vita), (b) three written recommendations indicating probable success in the program, and (c) a writing sample that will be scheduled through the department.

The student must remove conditional status in the first nine hours of graduate courses; failure to do so will result in dismissal from the program.  There is no conditional admission for licensure candidates.
