Applications will be accepted until the program starts in May, but we strongly encourage you to apply as soon as you are ready so that we can inform you of your admission decision as soon as possible. Please contact the Off-Campus Program Coordinator with any questions.
You will apply to the program and then submit additional materials:
Once you apply to the UNC Graduate School and your application packet is complete, your application will be reviewed by the graduate school then sent to the School of Teacher Education for an admission decision. A completed application typically takes four to six weeks to process.
“The quick timeline and the convenience of where it was offered were important to me. Once I researched UNC’s great teacher education history, it was an easy choice.”
