||What are the differences between the MED and the MIT
||The MED program is designed for educators who already have a
teaching credential and are looking for a master's degree to further
develop their skills and knowledge. The MIT is designed for those
looking to become certified as teachers who would also like to earn
a master's degree.
||Can credits from another university be transferred to
the MIT program?
||Nine semester hours of graduate work may be taken at another
institution and transferred, provided the work fits the program
plan, is recommended by the program advisor and is approved by the
director of master's programs in education. Students applying for
admission to the program may request to have prior graduate study
considered for transfer into the program.
||I already have a Master's degree - do I have to take the
GRE or MAT?
||No, those who have already completed a Master's degree do not
have to take the GRE or MAT. Please note that the degree must have
been awarded - waivers are not given to those who have not completed
||I have a job that required me to have a fingerprint
clearance, do I still need to obtain my fingerprints?
||If you work in a school district and you think the OSPI already
has a fingerprint clearance in their database for you (they must not
be older than 2 years) we would be happy to check. Just let us know.
||Where do I go to....get my fingerprint clearance...take
my CPR class....take the GRE or MAT?
resources PDF" has detailed information to help you with these
||Once my application is complete, about how long does it
take for an admission decision?
||For the MIT program, once your application is complete, it goes
to a faculty committee for review. We advise applicants that
admission decisions can take up to one month.
||When are classes offered?
||Classes for the MIT program are typically offered in the late
afternoon or evenings.
