In addition to the general admission requirements listed earlier in this bulletin, the School of Education and Psychology requires a satisfactory GRE score on the general exam taken within the last five years for M.A. and M.Ed programs, three professional references, and a personally prepared statement of philosophy and purpose. Applicants who already hold a graduate degree from a regionally accredited institution or those applying to the M.A.T. program are not required to take the GRE general exam. An interview with one or more School of Education and Psychology faculty members may also be required. The quality of the statement of philosophy and the three professional references are significant factors in the decision process.
In addition to general admission requirements described elsewhere in this bulletin, candidates for degrees in the School of Education and Psychology must meet all prerequisites listed under their chosen areas of specialization. Deficiencies may be removed after admission to graduate study, but any credit earned thereby will not apply to minimum degree requirements. A plan for the removal of all deficiencies, including professional experience and/or certification requirements, must be approved by the School of Education and Psychology faculty. All deficiencies and program requirements must be satisfied before the degree is granted.
