Graduate Education Programs

Graduate degree programs offered by the College of Education are designed to accommodate the schedule of the working adult and are delivered in both on-line and seated formats. The Master of Education and Master of Arts in Teaching programs also offer courses during the summer to expedite students' progress toward graduation.

Tuition and Fees
The one time only, non-refundable application fee is $25 and should accompany the application for admission. The application fee is waived for graduates of Anderson University.

The tuition rate for a graduate course is $331 per semester hour of credit, which does not defray the cost of books, supplies, or other ancillary materials. A matriculation fee of $100 is charged for Chalk and Wire portoflio software. A candidate who enrolls in two three-hour courses during a semester is considered a full time student.

A graduation fee of $100 is assessed for processing and the diploma, regardless of whether the candidate participates in the commencement ceremony. For those participating in the graduation ceremony, an additional fee of approximately $75 is charged for the cap and gown.

Conditional Status
At the discretion of the Dean of the College of Education, a degree-seeking applicant who does not meet all the requirements for admission to a respective program may be admitted with the status of "Conditional." In order to reach full admission in a graduate degree program, the student with "Conditional" status must reconcile any admission deficiency(ies) before the completion of nine (9) credit hours of graduate work. The "Conditional" student who does not resolve any admission deficiency(ies) within this period will be withdrawn from the program.

Non-Degree Seeking Student (Master of Education program)
The student who is seeking a Master of Education degree or a Master of Education in Administration and Supervision degree may enroll in a maximum of nine (9) credit hours after meeting all admission requirements for the respective program. If the student decides to become a degree-seeking student, the Coordinator of Graduate Studies should be notified.

Transfer Credit
A total of six (6) credit hours from a regionally accredited institution may be transferred upon a review of the transcript and course description by the Dean of the College of Education. Credit may be given for a graduate level course which is determined to be equivalent in content and for which a grade of "B" or higher has been achieved. A student who wishes to transfer a course from another institution must complete the Request for Transfer Graduate Course Credit form, which is available from the Office of the Graduate Studies Coordinator.

Time Limits
A graduate degree awarded from Anderson University suggests that the student has obtained useable knowledge based on best practices and current research in the discipline. Therefore, all program requirements for graduation must be completed within five (5) academic years from the date of matriculation into the program.

Financial Aid
Fully admitted, degree-seeking applicants may be considered for need and non-need based Federal Stafford Loans and the Teacher Loan program. For more information, please visit the Graduate Financial Aid page.
