Master's Programs

Rolling admission means that completed applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis, not after a set deadline. Rolling admission means that applications are accepted until the class reaches capacity. A rolling admission policy encourages early submission of applications.

Due to the nature of rolling admission, capacity can be difficult to predict. In the past, it has usually happened in mid- to late- Spring. Whenever full subscription of programs occurs, notice will be posted.

All of our master's programs, with the exception of the following three programs adhere to a rolling admission policy. Applications for the Professional Counseling and Mental Health Services, M.Phil.Ed. are due February 1 and applications for the Teacher Education Program are due June 1.
