Application Process

Fall Deadline: May 15
Spring Deadline: November 1
Summer Deadline:  February 1

If you are interested in the 12 month plan under strand A, you can ONLY apply for the summer term of each year.  If you are interested in spreading the strand A program over more than 12 months, you may apply for any term.

Strand A Requirements: MEd Plus License

Completion of Strand A requires a major in one of the sciences or the equivalent coursework. Applicants who have at least 18 hours of completed coursework in the sciences may be accepted into Strand A and complete science deficiencies while earning the graduate education degree.  Strand A requires an overall GPA of 3.00/4.00 for the final 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of undergraduate study, and 3.00/4.00 for any post baccalaureate/graduate coursework, as well as 2.50/4.00 GPA for science courses.  Remember, both Strand A and Strand B admit students every semester, but completing Strand A in 12 months requires beginning the program in the summer term.

Strand B Requirements: MEd Only

While fundamental science knowledge and science-related experiences are required, there is no specified amount of science coursework required for Strand B. Strand B requires an overall GPA of 3.00/4.00 for the final 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of undergraduate study, and 3.00/4.00 for any post baccalaureate/graduate coursework.
