Program of Study for the Education Specialist Degree in Higher Education


Admission Requirements: Master’s degree from an accredited college or university; complete application to the Graduate School ; official general GRE or MAT exam scores, unless waived.

To be considered for admission, applicants must meet the criteria for admission to the Graduate School . Meeting this condition does not guarantee admission.

Standardized Exam Waiver Eligibility: The standardized exam (GRE or MAT) requirement may be waived for applicants who submit an essay on what applicant believes are most pressing issues facing higher education today.

Location: On Campus and Off Campus; Off-Campus cohorts begin periodically and follow a part-time hybrid (mixture of face-to-face and online) format.

Additional Standardized Exam Waiver Eligibility Information


Standardized exam (GRE, GMAT, MAT) waiver eligibility for graduate degree programs at Appalachian State varies by program. No exam waiver is automatic and an approved waiver request does not guarantee acceptance into the program. A denied waiver request does not mean that a candidate is denied admission to the program, only that a standardized exam score is needed to more fully evaluate the application. More complete information about standardized exam waivers can be found in the Admissions Requirements section of this Bulletin .
