ADED is a selective program. Our admissions process to Advanced Study (which is essentially the junior- and senior-level courses, including student teaching) takes a holistic approach using test results, G.P.A., and an interview.
For ADED majors, Advanced Study applications are accepted every Spring and Summer. Advanced Study starts every Fall semester.
If you plan to apply for Advanced Study in Spring 2021, please apply in the student portal between December 1, 2020 and January 29, 2021. If you plan to apply for Advanced Study in Summer 2021, please apply in the student portal between May 1, 2021 and June 1, 2021.
Reference forms are available online (follow the links below), and can be submitted when you sign up for your selective admissions interview.
If you want to graduate in Spring 2023, you can apply for advanced study in Spring 2021 or Summer 2021. After Summer 2021, the next opportunity to apply for advanced study will be in Spring 2022 for Spring 2024 graduation.
