MCLA seeks well-qualified candidates for its graduate education programs who represent the diversity in our region and beyond. Evidence of academic success and proficiency is required for admission.
Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. Teacher licensure candidates may request a preliminary transcript review by the Coordinator of Educator Licensure and Placement to determine whether content area requirements have been met during previous studies. A minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 is required for immediate matriculation. If the GPA is below 3.0, students may be provisionally admitted and be required to successfully complete two core courses with grades of B (3.0) or better before enrolling in any other courses.
Note: Meeting the minimum standards does not guarantee admission into the program. Application deadlines are May 1 for summer, July 1 for fall, and December 1 for spring admission.
