    Admissions Documentation 

    Admission policies and procedures for all graduate academic programs of Ohio Dominican University are the responsibility of the Graduate Curriculum and Academic Policies Committee (GCAP). Admission to a program is the decision of the Program Director and the Graduate Admission Committee who review and evaluate all applications. In the case of applicants who do not satisfy the general requirements for admission to a program, the Program Director will decide on the merit of such cases.

    For admission to the Master of Education in Educational Leadership program, applicants must:

    • Have a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution  
    • Have an undergraduate cumulative grade point average of 3.000 or higher, or completed at least nine semester hours at the graduate level from a regionally accredited institution of higher education with an overall grade point average of 3.000 or higher, or receive a score within the 50th percentile or above on each section (verbal, quantitative, and analytical) of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE)  
    • Have a teaching certificate/license
      Be currently teaching or have access to an academic classroom
    • Have official transcripts from every postsecondary institution attended  
    • Complete an application form  
    • Submit a Letter of Recommendation from their Superintendent or Principal of their school 
    • Interview with the Program Director/faculty 
    • A graduate application form w/ $25.00 non-refundable application fee 

    As indicated above, applicants must possess a teaching certificate/license for admission into a program. [Note: These programs do not lead to initial licensure.] The expectation is that an applicant is a practicing teacher. Many of the courses in the programs require experiences in a classroom. If the applicant is currently teaching, his/her own classroom may be used for most experiences. An applicant who is not currently teaching must make arrangements for classroom access to complete assignments.
