M.Ed. application instructions
Apply for admission. Even if you completed a degree or any classes at Northwestern in the past, you must complete a new application as a graduate student. Applying is free.
Master’s degree applicants must have an earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution and must have achieved an undergraduate cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Students with an undergraduate GPA of 2.7 to 2.99 may be considered for provisional acceptance. (Degrees from colleges accredited by the Association for Biblical Higher Education [ABHE] or affiliated with the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges & Universities [TRACS] will be considered on a case-by-case basis.) Send the following required documentation to the admissions office:
Transcripts (no undergraduate transcripts are required of NWC alumni)
Teaching license Applicants must possess a valid teaching license. A digital or scanned copy from your state's Department of Education website is sufficient.
Verification of teaching experience (for the teacher leadership track only; at least one year of experience is required for that program) Provide a letter on school letterhead, signed by your administrator or human resources representative. The letter can be mailed or a scan of the letter can be emailed to the admissions office.Office of Admissions
