In addition to the University requirements of admission, all students seeking degree, endorsement, approval, license or certificate change must meet the Master of Education (M.Ed.) Admission Criteria, and be formally admitted to graduate study.
A maximum of six graduate credits earned prior to graduate admission may apply to degree requirements.
Requirements for consideration of admission into the program are as follows:
Students must apply for admission and be accepted into the COE graduate program in educational technology, another GVSU graduate degree program, or already hold a Masters or terminal degree to acquire the proposed graduate certificate. Non-degree seeking students may take 6-credits before choosing a graduate degree program in the COE. Once admitted into the educational technology graduate program, students may choose the certificate (12-credits), the M.Ed. degree in educational technology (33-credits), or both. Credits earned towards the certificate will count towards the M.Ed. degree.
GVSU faculty members can complete the first two courses without having to apply to a GVSU graduate program and will be allowed to complete the final two courses to receive their certificate (reviewed on a case-by-case basis).
