Master’s Degree Admission Requirements

The Acacia University Masters Degree programs are 36 or 39-credit programs designed for graduate level educators who are presently teachers or administrators in a school setting or have regular weekly access to a school and classrooms.

Admission Eligibility and Requirements:

  • Successful completion of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university - The degree must be verified on original transcripts sent by the undergraduate institution directly to Acacia University. Transcripts that are international and/or not in English must be evaluated through an evaluation agency credentialed through National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).
  • Verifiable work experience as a teacher or administrator in an educational setting
  • Original transcripts from undergraduate degrees from accredited universities
  • Two recommendation letters completed by a school administrator or supervisor.
  • Applicants whose first language is not English and do not have a baccalaureate degree from a university in which instruction is conducted in English must provide evidence of English proficiency by submitting their TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) score. Master’s degree applicants must demonstrate college-level proficiency with a minimum score of 530 on the paper-based Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL PBT), or 71 on the Internet Based Test (iBT)
  • Completed DocuSign Enrollment Agreement

Acacia University courses are 100% online so each applicant must have access that includes e-mail and the internet to participate.

Regular Applicants

Applicants who have earned a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education and are currently employed in public or private education at the elementary, secondary or higher education level are considered regular applicants to the program. The majority of applicants to this program are adults working in a variety of professional education settings. Consequently, prior class rank and/or grade point average are not significant factors in the admission process.

Special Applicants

An individual not qualifying as a regular applicant may apply as a special applicant. Special applicants are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but must have an academic background equivalent to a bachelor’s degree earned in the United States.
