The GRE scores are not required for the Adult Learning and Leadership program for any of the degree levels (M.A., Ed.M. and Ed.D.). The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required for all applicants who have received their undergraduate degree from an institution where the language of instruction is not English.
Please visit the Teachers College Guide to Admission: http://www.tc.columbia.edu/admissions/admission/instructions/degree-programs/
Generally speaking, the Teachers College Admissions Office notifies students who applied by the priority TC deadline at some point around mid-March. Applicants who met the final deadline tend to hear from the TC Admissions Office around early to late May.
TC Admissions Office has information regarding these deadlines on their website: http://www.tc.columbia.edu/admissions/index.htm
Yes. Only completed application files are sent to our office, so the best thing you can do to ensure the quick processing of your file is to make sure that all materials are submitted in a timely manner and to do so long before the application deadline. Additionally, you should be certain that all College application requirements are met. For example, international transcripts need to be evaluated and verified by World Education Services, and international applicants for whom English is a second-language are required by the college to submit TOEFL scores. You should review the Guide to Admission for additional information on these and other requirements, and ensure that your own materials comply.
Unfortunately, the College does not have a centralized application system that allows each individual office to monitor the status of incoming applications. Should you have a question on where your application is in the process or whether any materials are missing, please contact the Admissions Office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speaking with or meeting with faculty members prior to applying will not promote the chances of acceptance for any applicant. However, we do recommend that you acquaint yourself with the work of the faculty, especially for Ed.M., and Ed.D. applicants. Faculty members and current students are available to discuss additional questions about the program during the program's annual open house information session. Please visit our program website for more information on this year's open house. Once acceptance decisions have been made, accepted applicants might be afforded opportunities to meet with faculty or students to discuss the program.
To speak with a faculty member or current student, contact the Program Secretary, Daniella Young at email@example.com.
Yes, you will need to submit a WES course-by-course evaluation of all post-secondary credentials (undergraduate and graduate, if applicable) earned outside of the U.S.
