Minimum Requirements for Admission
Admissions decisions are based on multiple criteria, including undergraduate academic record, scores on examinations, letters of recommendation, personal statement, evidence of special accomplishments, and relevant past experience. Criteria are considered in the aggregate. Special strength in one area can compensate for below-expectation status on another criterion. Congruence between program and student goals is also an important consideration. Admission to all graduate programs in the School of Education is competitive; meeting minimal admission criteria does not guarantee admission. The program has affirmative action goals, and candidates from historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
