In most cases, students pursuing a certificate only are not eligible for financial aid. Exceptions to this statement are noted with an asterisk. Before applying, please check with the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships to determine if your situation qualifies you for financial aid.

We offer two specialist in education (EdS) programs that give you the opportunity to focus more in depth on your studies than pursuing a master’s degree program. You’ll be able to tailor your studies to your specific needs.
