Educational Leadership - Admission to the Program

Educational Leadership



Admission to the M.Ed. and certification options occurs at three levels – admission to the University, Graduate School, and Educational Leadership program. Guidance to online admission at all three levels is provided in the Educational Leadership Program Admission Guide. Complete all steps listed in the table for the degree or certification program that fits your needs. Admission to the Ed.D. is outlined on the Ed.D. admission page. Applicants may be admitted into the Graduate School under regular or conditional guidelines as described in the Academic Catalogs (click on the Admission to Graduate School link). Additionally, admission requirements and deadlines are provided on the Graduate Programs Admissions Requirements and Deadlines page.

Once you have been accepted at all levels, have a completed plan of study (degree plan or certification plan as applicable to your needs), and have read the letter associated with your degree plan, as applicable to candidates for the M.Ed., your next step will be to enroll in courses. Detailed information pertaining to course enrollment procedures, appropriate course sequencing, annual course rotations, green lighting, etc. is all contained on the Enrolling in Classes page of the Educational Leadership website.
