Admissions Information

Special Application Requirements

Masters (M.A. and Ed.M.) applicants are reviewed on an ongoing basis. For scholarship awards, applicants who meet the Summer/Fall Early deadlines receive preference (January 15 for summer and fall and November 1 for spring) with the most aid going to doctoral students who meet the Ed.D. January 2 early deadline. All applicants should consult the Admissions Office for additional application information.

Doctoral (Ed.D.) applicants are required to submit a writing sample, prior transcripts, letters of recommendation, a personal statement, and results from the GRE General Test (a TOEFL test score is required of international students). They are also strongly encouraged to arrange for an interview. In making financial aid decisions, CMLTD reviews doctoral applications once a year in late February with the expectation that doctoral students will start during summer or fall sessions. Consequently, doctoral candidates are encouraged to meet the January 2nd early deadline. There is no guarantee of progression from a masters program to a doctoral program within CMLTD.

In addition to academic criteria, CMLTD takes into account the relevance of its resources to a prospective student's professional goals as described in the personal statement when making admission decisions.

The following is a guideline of requirements and important dates for various CMLTD degrees and tracks.
