          Welcome to Edinboro’s Graduate Studies Program!

          If you’re ready to start this journey, you must first create an account. After creating your account please complete the two page application and pay the $30 application fee.

          If you are still working on your application, would like to check your status or application decision click here: online application.

          To enter Edinboro’s Graduate Studies program, you must comply with the general admission requirements as well as with any additional admission requirements for your selected program.

          ONLINE PROGRAM APPLICANTS: Effective January 1, 2017, Edinboro University is an approved SARA* institution. Through SARA membership and state authorization, Edinboro University may admit online graduate students from all 50 states.

          It is important that online applicants who are applying to graduate programs leading to state licensure in states other than Pennsylvania be aware of the various state professional licensure requirements. To that end, please use the link below to check the licensure requirements by state:

          Or you may click on these discipline-specific links:

          *SARA is the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement which is an agreement among member states, districts and territories that establishes national standards for interstate offering of postsecondary distance education courses and programs. Pennsylvania's SARA membership is effective January 1, 2017, and EU is a participating SARA institution. If you have any questions about EU's state authorization, please email

          Please note: Edinboro University’s graduate programs have limited enrollment; meeting admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Late applications may be considered if space is available in the program.

          Only complete applications will be given full consideration. A complete application is defined as one in which all materials required for the admission decision have been received by the Graduate Office. Applicants must arrange for the Graduate Office to receive an official transcript from each college or university at which graduate or undergraduate credit has been earned. Transcripts must be received directly from the issuing school and will not be accepted if “issued to student.” Applicants who have not yet earned a bachelor’s degree may submit a partial transcript at the time the application form is submitted. This may entitle the applicant to conditional admission pending receipt of the official transcript with posting of graduation.

          An applicant for admission may be admitted on an unconditional, conditional, special student, non-degree teacher certification, post-baccalaureate certificate, post-master’s program basis or denied admission.

          Dispositions. Dispositions are the character traits, attitudes, beliefs, behaviors, and emotional qualities necessary for specific professions and graduate study in general. If the faculty believes that an individual does not have the appropriate dispositions for the field of study/profession in question, they may recommend to the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research denial of admission even if undergraduate grades and admissions test results are exemplary.

          For complete information on applying, see the Edinboro University Graduate Catalog.
