PK-12 Administrative Certificate


Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Your completed application will include a 1-2 page essay, the application supplement, transcripts and at least half of the $550 program fee, which is applied to the costs of your pre-assessment, pre-panel, and panel reviews.

If you are pursuing multiple endorsements, you will pay $550 for the first license and $275 for subsequent licenses. If you are pursuing a Ph.D. or Ed.D. in addition to an administrative license, you are charged a program fee of $275 for each license sought. Applications to the doctoral and licensure programs are separate processes. Only three-credit licensure courses that have been approved by the candidate's adviser may be counted toward an Ed.D. or Ph.D. If you are considering doing both, contact Gary Prest at

No GRE scores are required.

Please note: This program is not offered full-time and therefore is not intended for international students needing a visa to study in the United States.
