Additional Information: 

*The M.Ed. in Special Education program (with or without certification) only admits students into the first Fall Cohort. 

** To meet this deadline, applicants should have applied to UTA's Graduate School. This includes completion of their ApplyUTA application, paying the application fee, and submitting their official transcripts

***Applicants may still need to complete a program-specific application process after being admitted to the Graduate School. 


Applicants seeking admission to the Master of Education must submit two* recommendation forms. The required Recommendation Form is available for download here. Please wait until you receive your 10-digit, UTA student ID number and until a member of our academic team contacts you to submit your recommendation forms.

Program Eligibility, International Admissions and English Language Test Score Requirements


Information for Permanent Residents and International Applicants 

Our fully online programs are open to United States Citizens, Lawful Permanent Residents, and International Students who do not hold F1, J1, B1, and B2 status. In addition to the required application and admission documents, the following materials must also be submitted:

  • Lawful Permanent Residents: Submit a copy of your Permanent Resident Card.
  • The TOEFL* or IELTS is required if an applicant’s native language is not English or if the applicant does not hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution. It typically takes 10-15 business days for scores to arrive from ETS and be processed by Admissions. The test must be taken in time for results to arrive and be processed in Admissions before completion of the second course. Those wishing to request a waiver of this requirement should contact the graduate advisor. You are required to submit an official test score report sent directly from the testing agency. UTA's ETS institutional code is 6013.

*Certification programs only accept TOEFL due to Texas Education Agency requirements.
