Admission Requirements

Master’s Degrees

Prospective candidates must meet the following requirements to be eligible for admission to the Master’s degree programs:

  • Bachelor’s degree (or higher). A minimum of a Bachelor’s degree is required. Official baccalaureate degree transcripts are due at the time of application.
  • 3.0 GPA. We seek a GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.0 or higher, or equivalent experience.
  • Transcript Evaluation (for non-US baccalaureate degrees): Transcript Evaluation is due at the time of Application for Master’s Programs. For applicants whose baccalaureate degree was obtained outside the United States or its territories, you will need to have your official baccalaureate degree transcript evaluated. Please see the note below on Transcript Evaluation and Translation.
  • English language proficiency, if needed can be evidenced through a number of proficiency assessments. We recommend the Duolingo English Proficiency Test with a score over 90 indicating proficiency.
  • Government-Issued Photo ID. We require your government-issued photo ID as part of your application submission.

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are documents that are produced by a college or university’s Office of the Registrar (or similar), and must be ordered according to the instructions provided by the university.

Whether issued as secure .pdf documents, via a third party (such as National Student Clearinghouse, or Parchment), or printed on blue tamper proof security paper, official transcripts are important to third parties so that they can be assured of authenticity (originating directly from the university) and content accuracy. Official transcripts are usually issued in portrait format, and contain the seal of the university and the signature of the University Registrar.

(For Non-US Baccalaureate Degrees) Transcript Evaluation and Translation

For those candidates seeking a U.S. teaching license upon completion of the Teach-Now Certification Program, please note that as part of your application for a U.S. state-issued teaching license, you will need to have your official baccalaureate degree transcript from non-U.S. institutions evaluated for educational equivalence to a U.S. 4-year baccalaureate degree.  This course by course evaluation can be conducted by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) member agency.  This evaluation should be requested from a NACES member agency at the time of application.

See for a list of current NACES member agencies that can conduct a course by course transcript evaluation and/or provide translation services.  We have partnerships with 3 NACES approved agencies to streamline the evaluation process. Information and instructions can be found here and transcript evaluation FAQ can be found here.
