Admission to the Adult Education Program
Graduate School Admission
Application for admission to the Graduate School is made either online or on forms furnished by the Graduate School. All applicants for admissions pay a nondeductible, nonrefundable fee of $60. The application form and all supporting documents should be received by the Graduate School, Ragsdale Building, (252) 328-6012 at least thirty days prior to the beginning of any semester or summer term.
Applicants are asked to furnish two official transcripts from each institution attended since high school, test scores from the MAT or GRE, and at least three letters of recommendation. Once the application is complete and has been forwarded to the Coordinator of the Adult Education program, the applicant will be contacted about completing the writing sample and interview.
General Admission Requirements
Certificate in Community College Instruction
The Adult Education program also offers a 15-hour certificate in Community College Instruction. The Certificate is endorsed by the North Carolina Community College system and is offered online. Application is made through the Graduate School and requires undergraduate transcripts, two letters of reference, and a goal or purpose statement regarding teaching at the community college level. No GRE or MAT is required.
Students who wish to take resident course work for purposes other than a master's degree may be admitted by presenting an application supported by a transcript showing the awarding of a bachelor's degree. However, graduate courses taken under this admission may not necessarily be used to fulfill requirements for any master's program. There are no prerequisite courses for graduate work in adult education since the interdisciplinary nature of the profession is its strength.
