Admission Requirements

    • Complete an application for admission.

    • Submit three letters of recommendation from principals, superintendents, or other qualified educators.
    • Submit a copy of a valid Pennsylvania Instructional I or II certificate.
    • Submit documentation of five years of professional school experience in an instructional area. Candidates may be admitted with four years of experience if they will complete five years of experience by the time their program concludes.
