Master of Education / Admissions

All applications for admission to the Master of Education and add-on licensure programs are considered ready for review after the materials listed below have been submitted to the Graduate Studies Office:

  • Completed online or paper application; nonrefundable $60 application fee required. Online payment is available via paypal.
  • Official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended, in sealed envelopes or sent electronically from the institution directly to Meredith College.
  • Two completed recommendation forms, in sealed envelopes, from professional educators who know your teaching
  • Official report of scores of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), mailed directly from the Educational Testing Service or official mailed scores from the Miller Analogies Test (MAT)
  • Statement of Work Experience (resume or C.V.)
  • Copy of teaching license
  • Responses to essay questions

International and permanent resident applicants must also submit:

  • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) scores, mailed directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Scores must not be more than one year old, unless the student has been enrolled full-time in an accredited American college or university in the interim. Except in cases where English is their native language, international applicants must submit satisfactory TOEFL scores. The TOEFL Bulletin of Information is available at American embassies and consulates, or can be obtained by writing: TOEFL, CN 6155, Princeton, New Jersey 08541-6155.

International students must also present copies of the following forms to the Graduate Studies Office:

  • Passport
  • Visa
  • I-94 card, Arrival/Departure Record
  • I-20
  • Alien Registration Number (permanent resident only)
  • Financial statement showing resources for a one year period
  • Proof of health insurance

Applicants holding F-1 visas must list the school or college they have permission to attend and submit a copy of their current I-20 form. The college will assist them in the preparation of a new I-20 form, if applicable. Admission of an international student who requires an F-1 visa is conditional until the proper visa is obtained. A student must be admitted to the graduate program to receive an I-20.

Once a complete application has been received, the applicant may be contacted to schedule an interview.
