Admission to the Program
The application process is managed by the Center for Graduate Studies.
There is no single factor or test score to determine student admission to the Master of Science in Education. However, a bachelor's degree is required, with an expected GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Data used to reach an admissions decision include:
- An online graduate application with the student's written objective for entering the program;
- All undergraduate and graduate transcripts; and

After reviewing these data, the Department of Education faculty discusses all information regarding each applicant. The decision to accept or deny an applicant lies wholly within the jurisdiction of the department.
