Admission to Program

In addition to the general requirements of the university, specific requirements for admission to classified status follow:

  1. A valid teaching credential or teaching experience;
  2. A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 ("B") in all courses taken in education;
  3. Completion of the graduate entrance writing requirement;
  4. Three letters of recommendation, one from the school where the candidate has most recently taught or is currently teaching, to be evaluated by faculty members in the program.
Students who do not meet these criteria may be admitted as conditionally classified graduate students. No more than 20 quarter units may be used to demonstrate fitness to complete the program (to move from conditional to classified status).
