Application requirements include:

1.  Online Graduate School application and non-refundable application fee;

2. Official transcript(s) from all institutions attended for undergraduate and graduate coursework. Transcripts must be sent directly to Winthrop's Graduate School office from the issuing institution(s). We cannot accept transcripts (even sealed, official transcripts) from individuals;

3. Copy of current South Carolina State Department of Education Class III Professional Certificate or the equivalent from another state. Applicants without the above certificate, including but not limited to international applicants and applicants to the educational technology option should submit documentation (e.g. letter from an administrator, transcript, etc.) indicating previous preparation and/or experience as a classroom teacher. (Note: Students will need access to a classroom setting for many classes in this program. The MEd in C&I is not a certification program.);

4. Have an undergraduate degree grade point average of a minimum of a 3.0 out of a 4.0 scale.


Submit official scores on either:

  • The General Test of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Preferred GRE scores are 151 on the verbal reasoning section and 153 on the quantitative section.
  •  The Miller Analogies Test (MAT). Preferred MAT score is 392.

5. Statement of professional goals; and

6. Two letters of recommendation, at least one from a professional educator who has observed the applicant teach. Letters should reflect work with children and address the applicant’s leadership potential. In the online admissions application, you will be asked to provide names and email addresses of two individuals from whom you have requested letters of recommendation. These two people will then receive an email instructing them to upload the letter into our online application system. It's a good idea to talk with these individuals ahead of time so they will be expecting the email when they receive it.
