Applicants for Fall 2024: Beginning in Fall 2023, the Ed.D in Educational Leadership program no longer requires the GRE to apply. Applicants must demonstrate adequate quantitative, analytic, and writing aptitude to be admitted. Students who believe their application materials do not fully reflect their academic potential are encouraged to include in their application an official GRE score received within the last 5 years. Any candidate may submit official, current GRE scores for consideration by the admissions committee.
Letters of Recommendation
Ask your references to speak to your leadership experience and potential and ask them to provide specific examples in their letters, especially of experiences or activities in which they have observed your leadership.
Admitted applicants will be required to submit official transcripts from all institutions to The Graduate School as well as the School of Education.
Statement of Purpose
The EdD in Educational Leadership at UNC aims to provide experienced educational professionals with the knowledge and skills to transform schools and districts. Please provide a statement of purpose that explains the following:
All application materials are submitted electronically. Applicants are responsible for monitoring their application status and ensuring that their application, including letters of recommendation and official test scores, is complete by the application deadline. Failure to do so will result in your application not being reviewed for admission.
*Only in unusual circumstances and after consultation with the program are other admission terms considered.
