Admission requirements
Students applying for admission to the Master of Education program must meet the following minimum requirements:

  1. Baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution
  2. A 3.0 cumulative undergraduate grade-point average or complete a minimum of 9 semester hours of graduate coursework in the M.Ed. with a B or above.

Regular admission
Applicants who meet all of the admission requirements will be awarded regular admission status.

Conditional admission
Conditional admission may be awarded under the following circumstances:

  1. Student does not meet regular admission standards but shows evidence of capability to achieve success in the graduate program.
  2. Student’s academic background indicates that additional undergraduate coursework is warranted before or concurrent with enrollment in graduate classes.

Special admission
A student who does not intend to work toward a graduate degree at Manchester University but who wishes to take a course or courses for graduate credit may apply for admission as a special student. A maximum of six semester hours may be earned as a special student. To be admitted, the applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution by Sept. 1 of the year of admission as a special student, and have permission of the program director.

Students should request that WES perform a course-by-course evaluation, and they should have a report sent directly to Manchester University at Office of Graduate Studies, Manchester University, 604 E. College Ave., North Manchester, IN 46962. Information about WES is available at www.wes.org. Students are responsible for paying fees to WES (not Manchester University) for this service.
