Apply for Admission

The deadlines to apply to our degree programs for fall 2017 enrollment have now passed. We will begin accepting applications for fall 2018 enrollment in early fall 2017.

While our admissions process is highly selective, it is also personalized, comprehensive, and fair. There is no single formula or criterion for admission. HGSE looks for 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. 

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