Special Education Admission Requirements

Applicants for any of the student classifications except non-degree must meet all of the requirements for admission to the graduate programs.

  1. Provide evidence of a baccalaureate or more advanced degree from a United States regionally accredited or equivalent post-secondary institution with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.75 on a 4.0 scale for regular admission status. The cumulative grade point average is computed on the highest degree held at the time of application to the Edgewood College graduate program.
  2. Complete and submit graduate application (including $30 fee).
  3. Request that official transcripts for all undergraduate and graduate academic credits received from each post-secondary institution you attended be sent directly to Graduate and Professional Studies.
  4. Provide two letters of recommendation from college or university professors, supervisors, and/or professional colleagues who can focus on the probability of your success in graduate school.
  5. Submit a written statement listing the reasons why you think you will be successful in graduate school; cite how specific background experiences will aid in your success as a student.

Transfer Credits

Upon regular admission, an applicant may submit up to 12 semester hours of graduate credit from other United States regionally accredited (or equivalent) post-secondary institutions for consideration of transfer to Edgewood College for application to a degree program. Approval of the respective department is required. To be considered for application to a degree program, a course must have been taken within the past five years, must have a "B" or better grade for courses receiving a letter grade of "A" through "F" (if the grade is "P" the equivalency is determined by the appropriate school or department), must be relevant to the degree program to which it is being applied, and must not have been applied toward another degree. Grades from transfer courses are not computed in the Edgewood College GPA. The transfer of credits for the Studies in Change or Ethics interdisciplinary components requires approval of the Graduate Council IC Subcommittee.
