Thank you for your interest in this UNC graduate program! You will complete the UNC Graduate School application and then submit additional materials. Please review the Eligibility section of the Program Summary page prior to application.
U.S. applicants (outside of Colorado) for online programs: please be sure to check your eligibility by state of residence.
Step 1 – Apply
- Apply to the UNC Graduate School. You will start a "UNC Graduate School Application." The following bullets will support you as you complete the application and material submission process.
On the application, you will choose one of the following programs:
- Educational Technology M.A. (Extended Campus)
Graduate Certificate (Non-Degree): Educational Technology - Innovative Pedagogy (Extended Campus)
Request academic or professional letters of recommendation — 2 letters for master's applicants; 1 (work-related, from a colleague or supervisor) for certificate applicants — from those who can attest to your academic potential and abilities. You will be asked to supply contact information for your recommenders in the application.
International applicants: please visit the International Students Admission Requirements page for information about additional requirements.
If you are unable to complete your application in one session, you can log back in to your application later to complete it. The application fee process will appear once you submit your application.
Step 2 – Submit Transcripts & Supplemental Items
You will then continue in the system (or log into the Admissions Portal) to complete the following:
All applicants will need to request one official transcript from each regionally accredited college or university where a bachelor's degree or higher was earned (or is in progress). Some applicants may need to provide additional transcripts. Situations that require this are listed on the Graduate School website (choose Domestic or International). Directions for having your official transcript(s) sent to UNC are listed in the Application Portal.
Statement of Goals: two-page statement addressing your educational experience, future goals and how this program is a good match for your aspirations.
The application portal will also show you which of your recommendations have been completed.
GRE scores are NOT required for this program.
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. The timing of the admission decision depends on each individual program’s deadline and review 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.
