How to Apply
At this time, we are no longer accepting applications for fall 2013 enrollment. However, we hope that you will consider applying to HGSE for fall 2014 enrollment. The application will be available in late summer 2013.
If you would like to review the application requirements and procedures for fall 2013 enrollment to get a better sense of the admissions process, you are welcome to view the information below. Please note, however, that the online application form, requirements, and instructions are updated each year. Please be sure to review the updated information when it becomes available on our website at the end of the summer.
Application Requirements for Fall 2013 Enrollment
A complete application to a doctoral or master's program consists of the following:
- Online Application Form
- 2 Short Essay Questions (Ed.L.D. only)
- Statement of Purpose
- Three Letters of Recommendation (these must be submitted through the online application system)
- Standardized Test Score(s):
- Transcript(s) from each Postsecondary Institution Attended
- $85 Application Fee (paid via credit card with the online application)
Please note that interviews are only a part of the Ed.L.D. admissions process at HGSE, and will take place from February 28-March 1, 2013; there are no interviews for the Ed.D. or Ed.M. degree programs. Also, several programs have additional application requirements.
You must submit all of your required documents online, including your academic transcripts and letters of recommendation. After you enter the contact information for your three recommenders on your application, each will receive an email with instructions about logging onto our system. At that time, they will have the opportunity to fill out the Recommendation Form and upload a recommendation letter.
It is not possible to apply to multiple degree programs for the same academic year.
Individuals interested in non-degree study at HGSE should review the Special Student application process.
