Admission Requirements

Educational Technology admits students for its certificate program and master's degree in the fall, spring, and summer. Applications and all accompanying documents should be submitted within several months of the desired starting semester to ensure adequate processing time.

More specifically for guaranteed consideration, applications and accompanying documents for fall admission should be submitted by the second week in June, for spring admission by the second week in October, and for summer admission by the first week in March. Applications submitted after the guaranteed consideration date will be considered on a space-available basis.
