Required Documents

Please include ALL documents listed below in order for your application to be considered.

    • A letter of application.  You should discuss your professional and academic goals as well as share your perceptions about how the MA in Higher Education Administration (MA-HIED) will help in achieving those goals.  Any special issues that you think the admissions committee should know about (e.g., undergraduate GPA below 3.0, past graduate HIED courses taken under the “six-credit rule”, etc.) should also be highlighted.
    • A professional resume or curriculum vitae. No one format is “correct”, but the information most important to include is work experience.
    • Three references provided.  Full contact information for three references who might speak to your academic potential and/or potential for a career in higher education, including an active email address, should be offered in a separate document clearly marked as “References”.  Once the Office of Admissions has this information, they will contact the references via email and request that they complete a questionnaire and upload a letter.  It is a good idea to check with Admissions in advance of the admissions deadline regarding any reference letters that may still be outstanding, and follow up with any of those references.
