Application Information - EdD Program

 

This program is designed to admit candidates who meet the academic requirements for rigorous doctoral study and who possess personal qualities and professional experiences that suggest a strong potential for success both as doctoral students and as educational leaders.  Admission will be granted on a competitive basis.  

 

Application review occurs in two cycles: December 15th – Priority Review and March 2nd – Normal review. Application materials are due at 5:00 pm Pacific Time. Applications are reviewed after the December deadline and on a rolling basis thereafter until the March 2nd deadline has passed.

 

Select candidates (particularly those with extensive community college experience) are advanced to the interviews with program faculty.
