General Admission Requirements

The University and program requirements for admission into the online Master's Degree in curriculum and instruction are:

  • Applicants must have a bachelor's degree from a regionally-accredited institution. Candidates must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 in the last 45 quarter-credits (30 semester) of coursework completed before applying for admission or in all undergraduate work, whichever is higher.
  • A minimum score of 950 for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or 35 for the Miller's Analogies Test (MAT) is required. International students must have a minimum score of 550 on their Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination.

    Note: If a candidate's overall GPA or last 30 hours is 3.0 or above, they are exempt from the GRE requirement.
  • Candidates with exceptional qualifications and recommendations who meet all other requirements except the required grade point average and/or the required GRE/MAT score may be considered for admission on a probationary status.
After all your application materials have been received, the Graduate Committee will review your file and an admission decision will be made. In some cases, the Graduate Committee may request an interview. After the decision is made, you will be notified by mail of your acceptance into the program and to the University.

If you have any questions about your admissability into the Online Master's Degree program, please contact The Graduate Center.
