EdS Application Checklist

Admission to the Education Specialist  program in Instructional Design and Technology requires acceptance by both The University of Memphis Graduate School and the ICL Department; admission to the Graduate School and admission to a specific ICL graduate program are separate procedures.

Step-by-Step Instructions: Who to Contact with Questions:

Step 1. Take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). You may obtain information about test times and preparation from The University of Memphis Testing Center, 678-2428. (Contact the ICL Department for graduate admission test score standards.)

The University of Memphis Testing Center:

Step 2. Complete and submit an online application form, which includes: an official report of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) score (verbal, quantitative, and writing) and official transcripts of undergraduate and graduate study (see Step 3). 

Important - Ensure you have entered the following information, as failure to do so may result in a delay of the application process:

Major: Instruction and Curriculum Leadership (ICL)
Concentration: Instructional Design and Technology (IDT)

Applicants whose native language is other than English must also submit a copy of their scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

See Office of Admission website for the application form and deadlines.

Graduate Admissions:
Step 3. Have official transcripts for all previous graduate course work sent to the Graduate Admissions Office.

Visit the Apply to Graduate School page for more information about the application process. This includes all steps for applying as well as an application checklist of important items according to the Graduate School’s application process.

While some items for the Graduate School application process and the ICL departmental application process may overlap, please note that each of these are separate application procedures.

If you are applying as an international graduate student, please also see Information for International Students

Graduate Admissions:
Step 4.  Print and complete the ICL application and send to Stormey Warren in Ball Hall 215. Your application should also include 2 sealed letters of recommendation on letterhead, a copy of your GRE scores, and an official transcript.

Upon notification of acceptance, proceed with Step 5.

Step 5. Meet with your advisor to plan your course work for the first semester; your letter of acceptance will include the name of your advisor. Begin course enrollment.

Prospective students should check with the department program coordinator of the program to which they are applying for specific deadlines and requirements. Applicants should allow a reasonable amount of time for necessary documents to be processed by the degree program and the Graduate School (approximately four to six weeks). International applicants should allow at least four months for the application process. Applicants are urged to apply early to ensure consideration. Contact the ICL department about any requirements and deadlines.

If you have previously attended The University of Memphis Graduate School and have not been enrolled for a semester, excluding summer, you must apply for readmission. Readmission may subject the student to all of the rules, prerequisites, and degree requirements listed in the current Graduate Catalog. Submission of an application for readmission does not ensure acceptance. Readmission may be denied or conditions may be imposed on the student. (Contact the Graduate Office of Admissions and follow the specified procedures: Wilder Tower, 678-2111 or http://www.memphis.edu/admissions/graduate.php).
