MCLA seeks well-qualified candidates for its graduate education programs who represent the diversity in our region and beyond. Evidence of academic success and proficiency is required for admission.
Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. Teacher licensure candidates may request a preliminary transcript review by the Coordinator of Educator Licensure and Placement to determine whether content area requirements have been met during previous studies. A minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 is required for immediate matriculation. If the GPA is below 3.0, students may be provisionally admitted and be required to successfully complete two core courses with grades of B (3.0) or better before enrolling in any other courses.
Note: Meeting the minimum standards does not guarantee admission into the program. Preferred application deadlines are May 1 for summer, July 1 for fall, and December 1 for spring admission.
Tuition and Fees - $400.33 per credit hour
Cost per 3 credit course - $1,200.99
Minimum credits per semester for financial aid eligibility - 5
Graduate students are eligible for a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Student Loan. Aside from this, the financial aid application process is the same as for undergraduates.
