Ed.D. Program Application

The application process for potential doctoral students is more involved than it is for any other type of student. Applicants must not only meet university requirements but must also be approved by the College of Education and Professional Studies and the Dean of Graduate Studies. To be considered for admission to the Ed.D. program, you must have a master’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university and a Graduate Record Exam (GRE) score.
