Admissions & Financial Aid

Apply for Admission

While our admissions process is highly selective, it is also personalized, comprehensive, and fair. There is no single formula or criterion for admission. What the Ed School looks for are students with a passion for education, diverse life and work experiences, and a deep commitment to making an impact in the world—as educators, researchers, policymakers, and service-minded leaders of character and integrity.

The deadlines to apply to our graduate degree programs have passed. We will begin accepting applications for fall 2015 enrollment in early fall 2014.

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email the Admissions Office.
