Information for Interested Students

Graduate Admissions

Students who wish to apply to one of the graduate degree programs in the College of Education should:

1) Review our Graduate Program offerings to determine any special requirements or deadlines.

2) Complete the online Graduate School Application. The application is also available in paper form from the Graduate School; however, the online application is strongly preferred.

3) Submit transcript, letters of recommendation, and other application materials as detailed by the Program webpage to the College of Education Office of Enrollment Management, not to the individual department. Failure to do so may result in delay in completing and reviewing your application.

Admission Deadlines

Each graduate program has unique deadlines for submission of completed applications and you should check with your specific program. Students should remember that an application will NOT be reviewed until all required materials have been received. Some programs have a rolling admissions policy. However, you are strongly encouraged to apply early in the cycle to assure you a place. Once the class is filled, your application may be rolled over to the next term. Please refer to the links below for specific deadlines for the program of interest.

Non-Degree Program Applications

If you are interested in our Post-Baccalaureate Program or another non-degree Certificate programs, please contact the Office of Enrollment Management for application procedures. You do not need to complete a Graduate Application.

Required Clearances for Working in Pennsylvania Schools

Due to the variety of research requirements and opportunities that may involve working directly with schools or students, it is recommended that Graduate Students complete required clearances as soon as they begin their program in the College of Education.

Clearance Policies


A student who has withdrawn, been dismissed for failure to maintain continuous enrollment for more than one semester, or has exceeded the time limit and is therefore ineligible to register, may be required to file a new Application for Admission. If accepted, the student is considered newly matriculated at the time of admission and will be required to complete all current program requirements.
