Application and Admissions

Non-Degree Seeking

Students wishing to obtain additional licensure in Special Education need only apply as non-degree seeking graduate students through IU East. Check the space that identifies you as non-degree seeking.

Degree Seeking

Should a student desire to obtain a graduate degree at IU East, the Special Education coursework will be applied towards the Master’s Program in Education. Students selecting this option must complete the IU East Application for Graduate Studies. Students seeking a Master of Science degree in Education must declare themselves to be degree-seeking.

In either situation, the application and processing fee must be submitted to the Admissions office either online or in-person.
