Application Information

Academic Requirements

Admission to the program includes four academic requirements: degree, grade point average, testing, and certification level.  Before applying for admission to the Special Education Transition Specialist Endorsement program, individuals should determine if they are eligible or can become eligible by examining the following minimum academic and test score requirements:

  • An earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution.
  • A minimum overall undergraduate grade point average of 2.50 OR in most recent degree.
  • Documented T-4 or higher certification or equivalent state-issued, clear, renewable teaching certificate in special education.
  • A current clear criminal background check conducted as directed by the College of Education. Note: This requirement may be waived only with evidence of employment as a full-time teacher of record in a public school in Georgia. Evidence must be presented on the College of Education’s Employment Verification Form.

If you have questions about these eligibility requirements, please contact the Graduate Admissions Coordinator in the College of Education. Contact information is provided in the left panel of this page.

The above are minimum academic, test score or professional requirements only.  Read the entire application checklist to determine what documents must be included in your submission. Anyone who does not meet admissions requirements can apply as a non-degree-seeking student and take four designated courses (EDUC 6000, EDUC 6100, EDUC 6200 and EDUC 6300).  The Graduate Admissions Coordinator can direct you in this process.
