APPLICATION DEADLINE

We recommend that you apply at least 30 days before the start of your first semester, but you can contact the Program Coordinator to confirm upcoming deadlines. Class size is limited.

Application Process

You will apply to the program and then submit additional materials:

  1. Apply to the UNC Graduate School
    • Choose Technology, Innovation and Pedagogy-MA (Extended Campus) as your academic program of interest on the application.
    • Follow all graduate school application steps for the application fee and submission of official copies of your transcripts (GRE scores are not required for this program).
    • International applicants: please read the additional steps below.
  2. You will then click on "Submit Supplemental Items" (or log back in later and choose "Bear App Profile") to submit the following in the online application system once you have completed your graduate school application:
    • Three professional letters of recommendation from supervisors, university faculty, or colleagues - the system will help you initiate requests to be sent to these individuals.
    • Statement of Goals: two-page statement addressing your educational experience, future goals and how this program is a good match for your aspirations.

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 faculty/program for an admission decision. A completed application typically takes four to six weeks to process.

Interview: after a screening of the applications, program faculty will conduct a short interview process. The interview may be conducted in person, by telephone or by video conference.

International Students

All international (non-U.S. citizen) applicants should mark Yes for "Are you an international student?" at the beginning of the graduate application process. In addition to any application steps listed above, you will also need to prepare the following for your application:
