Program Admissions

Application for admission to the Graduate School is made either online or on forms furnished by the Graduate School ( All applicants for admissions pay a nondeductible, nonrefundable fee of $75. The application form and all supporting documents should be received by the Graduate School, Ragsdale Building, (252) 328-6012 at least thirty days prior to the beginning of any semester or summer term.

Academic Achievement – Applicants must first meet the requirements for admission to the Graduate School. The junior and senior years of undergraduate study are particularly crucial. It is recognized, however, that some applicants have finished their undergraduate study some time ago and that work experience and motivation are also factors in success in graduate study.

Applicants must complete and submit:

  1. an online application form
  2. college transcripts, and
  3. three letters of reference which can speak to their ability to perform graduate level academic work as well as reflect their interest and experience in adult education.

Once the graduate school application is complete, it is forwarded to the Coordinator of the Adult Education program. The applicant will then be contacted about completing a writing sample and a Statement of Intent highlighting the applicant’s reasons for applying to the Adult Education program.
