MBA in Ethical Leadership
Master of Education with Professional Certification

Just like the greater Schreiner experience, the application process for graduate studies in Education is characterized by personal contact and attention. Application requirements are in place to maximize the likelihood of student success rather than restrict access. For example, the GRE requirement is automatically waived for students with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 and may be waived for non-qualifying students following the admissions interview.

Admission Requirements

Master of Education Applicants must:

  • Hold a Baccalaureate degree from an accredited four-year college or university
  • Complete a Graduate Admission Application
  • Send official transcripts from the schools granting your undergraduate (and graduate, if applicable) degree(s). Transcripts must include all previous transfer credit.
  • Pay application fee of $25.00
  • Provide three (3) letters of recommendation using the online form (note: please send this link to three individuals who can attest to your abilities to be a professional educator; at least one reference should come from a school administrator.)
  • Meet all technology requirements for online courses
  • Interview in person or by phone with Dr. Neva Cramer, Director of Education and Graduate Studies in Education, or 830-792-7266
