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 an institution whose accrediting body is included on the list of approved accrediting agencies and a Graduate Record Exam (GRE) score.

Application Deadlines

Certain graduate programs have earlier application deadlines. Check with the graduate department for departmental specific deadlines.

*The Ed.D. program accepts students for a fall start date only.
