How to Apply & Deadlines

Graduate Admissions - Supplemental Instructions
School Administration, M.S.A. Flex

Letters of Recommendation

Three written recommendations are required. These references should be from current or recent past supervisors that document administrative or similar leadership experience, preferably in a school setting, and potential success as a school leader. Specific, observable illustrations are regarded more favorably than references that are more generic in nature.

Statement of Purpose

A statement of purpose is also required (1-2 pages in length.) The statement must address:

  1. the School of Education’s Conceptual Framework and the Educational Leadership Department’s commitment to the pursuit of social justice and equity in public education; and
  2. an explanation as to how current or past work materially relates to that commitment.

Statements of purpose that speak directly and convincingly to these items will be regarded more favorably than those that do not.
