A maximum of 9 semester hours or 12 quarter hours of previous graduate courses can be accepted into the program and must be approved by the program director. Pre-admission credits are subject to the currency rule: At the time of completion of your degree, no credits may be older than 6 years.

 

Step 2: Send Transcripts

You must request official transcripts from every institution you have attended to verify degree(s) and coursework. At least one transcript should verify an obtained bachelor's degree.

Each institution should mail the transcript directly to the Master of Education office:

Master of Education Program
Weber State University
1351 Edvalson St., Dept. 1306
Ogden Utah 84408-1306

Alternately, you may deliver an official transcript bearing a registrar’s seal and unbroken seal to our office. A transcript marked "issued to student" is not official. If an institution was attended under a different name, please note the name change on the transcript request form and application.

If you graduated from WSU, you must send the WSU Records Office a written request that your official transcript be sent to the Master of Education office.
