If you have taken graduate courses here, your "Application Type" would be Graduate Studies: Readmit. If not, you would choose Graduate Studies: Beginner (even if you have your master’s degree or have taken graduate level courses elsewhere). Graduate Studies: Transient is for graduate students who are in good standing at another university but need a course we offer.
When you get to the Planned Course of Study (checklist item 6) find the MSED programs, and choose your major. Remember that MSED: Tchg - Initial Licensure K-12 is for Special Education ONLY.
Next, choose your concentration in Degree Additional information. Here, we've selected Initial Licensure, Secondary: Psychology.

Yes, if you are degree-seeking and working toward a full master's degree. If you are not degree seeking, the GRE is not required.
If you have received a master's degree from a regionally accredited institution, you are exempt from the GRE but will be subject to individual review.
The writing portion of the GRE can present a challenge. Our GRE Analytical Writing tips will help you prepare.
We are still using the old scoring system, but use the concordance table found at the ETS website to translate the new scores into the old. We use the highest score option.
We offer our Educational Leadership major to fulfill the requirements of Tennessee's Department of Education's "Instructional Leadership" license. You must have completed three years teaching experience to qualify.
If you've decided to skip a semester, you MUST reapply to Education Graduate Programs. Taking a semester off makes you inactive in the system. Reapplying simply makes you active in the system again. On the application, use your application login ID and pin. If you've forgotten your application login, use first-time account creation. Your social security number will tie your accounts and information together. Chose "Graduate Studies: Readmit."
Students will keep their email. However, they won’t have access to the library’s electronic info. UTM graduates can use TEL (Tennessee Electronic Library) and still use several of the services that the library has. Also, alumni can still come to the Paul Meek Library to check out books, DVD's, etc.
