Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Teacher Leadership Admission Requirements

M.Ed. Degree requirements

Unlike many other online M.Ed. programs, we don’t require GRE scores for admission. We know teachers work hard enough, so there’s no need to take additional tests before admittance into the program.

Graduate applicants to Goodwin University are required to:

  • Complete a graduate application for admission.
  • Submit an official or unofficial transcript verifying receipt of a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or the equivalent of this degree from another country with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
  • Submit an official or unofficial transcript from your most recent degree earned (this may be from prelicensure) with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
  • Applicants with less than a 3.0 CGPA may be considered for conditional admittance into the program under certain circumstances.
  • Provide a professional resume.
  • Submit proof of immunizations (measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella).
