Request Information about our graduate programs



In general, most graduate programs within the School of Education participate in rolling admissions and admit students on a space-available basis. Individuals interested in applying to a master's or doctoral degree program should contact the academic department overseeing the program of study to obtain deadline information. The School of Education will continue to receive and review applications after these dates on a space-available basis.

The Graduate Application Fee is $75.

Note on Restricted Graduate Credit

Please note that credit earned at the graduate level by students who are not matriculated in a graduate program (called restricted graduate credit) must be converted to graduate credit in order to be included in a graduate degree or certificate program. School of Education graduate programs, with the exception of Higher Education, allow a total of 9 (nine) restricted graduate credits to be taken and converted to graduate credit prior to matriculation. Higher Education allows no more than 6 (six) restricted credits to be taken and converted to graduate credit. You can learn more about restricted credit in the Syracuse University course catalog.
