Graduate Certificate in School Administration

The Post-Master’s Graduate Certificate in School Administration program allows an educator with a master’s degree in education to complete required course work without having to earn a second master’s degree. The candidate will complete 18 graduate credit hours (i.e., six designated courses in the M.S. in Educational Leadership program). The program is designed for classroom teachers with a master’s degrees in education who are interested in pursuing licensure as a school administrator. The program aligns with the National Education Leadership Preparation (NELP) standards for building-level school administrators and the required course work satisfies the state of Indiana’s requirements for a building-level school administration license.

Candidates to the Graduate Certificate in School Administration program need to have an earned master’s degree in education, possess a 3.0 GPA, submit a Statement of Purpose, resume, two letters of recommendation and provide transcripts.
