Graduate Program Admission and Financial Aid
You know which graduate program in SPU's School of Education is right for you. Now what? How do you apply for admission, and what financial aid is available to you as a graduate student?
Each graduate program has unique admission requirements, and you'll find those on the program's "Admission Information" page. You'll also want to remember these general requirements for all SPU graduate programs:
To be considered for admission into an SPU graduate program, you must apply online and meet the following requirements:
- Hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university or its equivalent.
- Submit an official copy of transcripts from the college or university that granted your bachelor's degree and any institution attended since that time.
- Present a GPA of at least 3.0 (4.0 = A) in the last 45 quarter credits of coursework completed before applying for admission or in all undergraduate work, whichever is higher.
- Present an acceptable score on the appropriate entrance examination as required by the particular program of study.
- Submit letters of recommendation from at least two people. The letters submitted must come from unrelated individuals familiar with your intended field of study.
- Pay the appropriate application fee.
- Meet any additional admission requirements of the particular program to which you are applying.
Although financial aid is limited for graduate programs, you are encouraged to apply. For information about loans and scholarships, visit Financial Aid Programs in the Graduate Catalog.
The School of Education offers scholarship opportunities available to graduate students, including the Kingswood Scholarship, for a limited number of educators currently employed in Christian schools, the Ethnic Diversity Scholarship, for students of color admitted to an SOE graduate program, and the Martinez Fellows Scholarship, for students of color who commit to teach in a Washington state public school. All students apply for these scholarships via one application.
The School of Education Scholarship Committee awards scholarships and determines the amount of the scholarships each year based on available funds.
