The SOE understands that students applying to our programs will have COVID-affected grades and we will not consider those grades a weakness in any student's application. Just as we have seen with the preK-12 students and teachers with whom we work, this crisis unequally affects our population. We understand that there are numerous reasons students may not wish to unmask grades this semester, and we are supportive of the University's decision to establish grading as they have. We are looking for a diverse population of students to become our nation's educators.
At this time, the School of Education does not offer degrees that are fully completed online. However, the School offers free and affordable, high-quality online courses/programs that do not require admission to the University. Those who successfully complete the MicroMasters in Educational Innovation and Improvement and are admitted to the School of Education can be granted advanced standing that will reduce the credit-hour requirements for a master’s degree in Educational Studies.
