Admission Requirements

Admission to graduate study is described in the College of Education and the Toulouse Graduate School sections. To complete admission requirements for the educational administration program, the student must request an admissions application packet from the educational administration program office. The requirements are:

  1. Bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. If a candidate already holds a master’s degree, the courses and the candidate’s performance in that degree are reviewed.
  2. Bachelor’s grade point average (GPA) of 2.8 or higher overall, or bachelor’s GPA of 3.0 or higher for the last 60 hours, or completed master’s degree GPA of 3.4 or higher.
  3. GRE scores: verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing. The program views high GRE scores as positive indicators of potential success in the program; however, low GRE scores need not exclude a candidate who shows positive indicators in other areas.
  4. A letter of recommendation from the applicant’s supervisor identifying the applicant’s reading, critical thinking and writing skills.
  5. An essay describing why the applicant is seeking a master’s degree in educational administration, identifying relevant educational experiences and strengths, and providing evidence that he or she will be successful educational leaders in an increasingly multicultural environment. Applicant documentation should show evidence of experience with diverse learners and populations.
  6. Resume or curriculum vitae that includes the candidate’s previous work and educational experiences. The applicant will have two (2) full years of teaching experience.
  7. The applicant must submit a program application form.
