How to Apply for Master of Education

Admission to the M.Ed. program is a two-step process. In addition to meeting the general requirements for admission to Salisbury University graduate study, students must apply for admission to the Seidel School of Education M.Ed. program.

Step 1: Complete application with Admissions

Complete the on-line application or obtain admissions material here.

Step 2: Complete M.Ed. program application materials

You will be contacted by the M.Ed. Program Office with information about M.Ed. program admission requirements. You will be asked to submit the following credentials for admission to the M.Ed. program:
  1. An application for admission including a written description of the reasons for pursuing graduate study in education and a statement of career goals within the discipline.
  2. Two recommendations supporting your ability to succeed in graduate study.
  3. A plan of study signed and approved by a faculty advisor.
  4. A transcript showing an undergraduate grade point average of at least 3.0.

Applicants can now track the receipt of their transcripts, letters of recommendation, goals statement, and any additional requirements by viewing their Admissions Checklist in GullNet.

Following the review of these materials, the program director formally notifies students of admission or denial to the M.Ed. program.

Although students may register for some courses after acceptance to the university for graduate study, they are expected to complete the process for full admission into the M.Ed. program, including the development of a program of study, prior to the completion of the first nine (9)credits in the program. Nine hours of credit earned at Salisbury University prior to full admission to the M.Ed. program may be applicable toward requirements for the degree, provided such credits are appropriate and approved for the degree program.

Questions regarding the applicability of courses taken as a non-degree graduate student will be resolved by the Masters in Education Graduate Program Director.

Provisional Admission

Students who have submitted all application materials for admission to the M.Ed. Program but who have not obtained a 3.0 cumulative grade point average upon completion of the baccalaureate degree may be admitted on a provisional basis. Provisionally admitted students must complete the first nine credits of graduate study at SU with no grade below B.

Upon successful completion of nine credit hours, students may apply for full admission to the M.Ed. program. Following review of the application materials, the program director formally notifies students of admission or denial to the program.

Students who do not meet the provisional admission requirement of achieving nine credit hours with grades B or above are not eligible to apply for admission to the M.Ed. program.

To assist students who are provisionally admitted, an advisor will be assigned. Students are expected to meet with their advisor to clarify program requirements and to assure that courses for which they register will be appropriate for the degree program.
