General Information

During this challenging time, we know you have questions about how the coronavirus (COVID-19) could impact your impending enrollment, especially if you are traveling to us. If you are planning to apply to a Graduate School of Education program, we want you to know that we are busy preparing and planning an impactful academic experience for you, and eagerly awaiting your arrival.

Please use our individual appointment scheduler to make a phone or Zoom appointment with a member of our admissions team. Individual appointments and meetings will still be held virtually.
