Applying to the School of Education

The intention of the faculty of the School of Education is to choose the best candidates from among the applicant pool to fill a limited number of available openings. We seek students who are mature, flexible, motivated, and bright. We have also found that varied life experiences and broad educational backgrounds contribute to a student’s ultimate success.

Admission to the School of Education consists of two parts: Application for Graduate Admission and Degree Candidacy and submission of the supporting documentation outlined in the requirements checklist. All application materials must be submitted prior to March 1. Materials submitted after March 1 will be considered as space permits.

Please see the Application Requirements Checklist for a full list of items that must be submitted to complete your Puget Sound School of Education application.

A candidacy decision will be based on the admission committee’s assessment of the applicant’s potential as a professional in his or her chosen field. The indicators upon which this judgment is based are drawn from the submitted application materials as well as performance in any courses already taken in the School of Education. Modest deficiencies in any category will be considered in context. In no instance will a candidate be considered without all evidence requested.

If you have any questions regarding applying to Puget Sound, please contact the Office of Admission by phone at 253.879.3211 or send an email message.  Program questions may be directed to Karen Stump with the School of Education at 253.879.3382 or kstump@pugetsound.edu.
