plan a personalized program of study.

Specialties Department by semester:

How to Apply for Master of Education
Admission to the M.Ed. program is a two-step process. In
addition to meeting the requirements for admission to the M.Ed.
program at Salisbury University, applicants must submit program specific materials prior to review of the application.
Step 1: Complete
application with Admissions
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:
- An on-line application for admission including a written
description of your goals and reasons for pursuing graduate study in
- Three (online) recommendations supporting your ability to succeed in
- A plan of study signed and approved by a faculty advisor.
- A transcript showing an undergraduate grade point average
of at least 3.0 and transcripts of graduate study, if any.
(Transcripts are to be mailed to the
Office of Graduate
Studies and Research.)
Applicants can now track the receipt of
their transcripts, letters of recommendation, goals statement,
and any additional requirements by viewing their "To Do
List" located in the Student Services Center in GullNet.
Following the review of these materials, the program director
formally notifies students of admission or denial to the M.Ed.
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.
