Admissions Requirements

Admission to the GCCE requires one of the following:

  • An undergraduate degree from an accredited 4-year college with a GPA of 3.0 on a 4-point scale in the major or in the last 60 credit hours of undergraduate study, or
  • A master's degree

Applicants who do not meet the GPA requirement may be admitted provisionally based on past work experiences as a professional in the field of K-12 education, higher education, human resource development, or training and development. If they earn at least a B (3.0) in the first three credit hours of coursework, they will be admitted to the certificate program.

Applicants are considered to begin the GCCE program in the Fall (Application Deadline of May 31st by 5pm). This allows students to begin the GCCE program with registration for Multicultural Lifespan Development. If there are available seats throughout the rest of the academic year, it might be possible for a few students to begin the GCCE program during Summer 1 or Spring semesters.
