Applicants to UoPeople’s online Master of Education in Advanced Teaching (M.Ed.) complete a two-step application process. First, applicants complete an online application (described below). No admissions testing is required. After meeting the initial admissions requirements, applicants can be accepted to begin studying as early as the very next term.
While they are taking the first few courses, students complete the second step of the admissions process (described below). Those who successfully complete their courses may then be accepted to be Degree Seeking Students. In general, courses taken during the first phase can be accepted for credit towards one’s degree program after being accepted as a Degree-Seeking Student (DSS), so no time is lost on the path towards a degree.
M.Ed. Admission Requirements:
• Bachelor’s degree
• English proficiency
• Complete the online application
• Pay the $60 non-refundable application fee.
• Demonstration of English proficiency is required per the guidelines listed here. If you are not able to demonstrate English proficiency, then you will be required to complete English Composition 1 course in your first term, before continuing to study in the Foundation courses.
Step 2 – Application Process to Become a Degree-Seeking Student (DSS) in a Graduate Course:
• Successfully complete UoPeople Graduate Foundations courses
• Submit proof of undergraduate degree
Submitting proof of undergraduate degree completion may be satisfied during your first term at UoPeople through the submission of:
1. official diploma (or transcript showing graduation) sent directly to UoPeople (either mailed, submitted online or a scanned copy sent electronically); or
2. a photocopy of the original diploma (or transcript showing graduation) certified by a notary sent directly to UoPeople (either mailed or submitted online);
For the quickest processing of your application materials, it is advised to send your documents electronically via the UoPeople Self-Service Portal here
It is important to verify that all the appropriate documents are included, as well as to be sure that you have copies for your personal records.
Please note that all submitted documents become the property of University of the People, and cannot be returned due to university regulations.
If applicants have any issues or questions regarding the required documents they need to send, they may contact their personal Admissions Advisor or the Office of Admissions at [email protected]
Documents that are not in the English language must be submitted along with an official notarized translation. Both the original and translated versions must be received to continue processing your application.
Diplomas and transcripts that are not in English must be submitted together with an official notarized translation, and in certain cases, the Office of Admissions may require applicants to present additional documentation.
