Admissions decisions are based on an overall profile of each applicant.
The applicant profile consists of information that indicates personal "fit" with the Curriculum and Instruction program and potential for success in the program.
To ensure consideration for acceptance into the current year’s summer cohort, completed applications must be on file at the Andrews University Graduate Admissions office by February 1.
* The closest Thomson Prometric Testing Center to Andrews University that gives the GRE test is in Mishawaka, IN. For more information about the GRE visit this page.
* For first time graduate students there is a scholarship based on your GRE scores. Please see more information about this scholarship here.
In addition to application materials required of all graduate school applicants (see Graduate Programs page for general admission requierements) the following items are of particular importance:
• A 500-word statement of purpose explaining how your professional goals fit with the mission of the Curriculum and Instruction program.
• Recommendation forms and letters from professionals. Do not submit recommendations from relatives.
• A completed Professional Experience form.
• A current resume or vita.
• Official transcripts from all schools where undergraduate or graduate courses were taken.
• Graduate Record Examination (GRE) general exam scores. Note: MA students may receive provisional acceptance without GRE scores, but will need to complete the exam during the first six months of their program.
• Documentation of English proficiency. See University Graduate Programs General Admission Requirements for details.
Prerequisites include at least 9 semester credits of course work in educational philosophy, educational psychology, and instructional methodology. Persons, such as corporate trainers, who seek admission without such a background, may be required to include such courses in their course plan. These prerequisites may add to the total number of credits needed to complete the degree.
