Master In Teaching Program Admissions Process

Phase One: Application

It is the desire of the Washington State University College of Education and the state of Washington to prepare the best possible teachers. Therefore, we reserve the right to seek the most highly qualified individuals for admission to Spokane MIT Programs. Simply meeting the application requirements does not guarantee admission to the program.

The priority application deadline is November 15, and only complete applications will be considered for admission. Additional complete applications will be accepted on a space available basis until April 1.

Step 1: Applicants submit an online application.
  • Navigate to our online application
  • Select the term for which you are seeking admission
    • For the MIT program, select SUMMER 2024, and click APPLY
  • Create a GradCAS account

    • *Please note that if you wish to be considered for both Pullman and Spokane campuses, only apply to one program and let us know that you are interested in both.
  • Download and complete the College of Education Volunteer and Professional Experience form to be uploaded with your application: Word or PDF

Step 2: Applicants submit official documentation of Basic Skills  and Content Proficiency Exams by April 1.

Applications may be considered and candidates interviewed prior to receiving exam scores; however, admission decisions will be made pending receipt of OFFICIAL basic skills and content proficiency exams.

  • Secondary applicants only: If you do not hold a BA or BS in the content area that you want to teach, submit your unofficial transcript(s) and a self-evaluation form. This will help us identify potential coursework deficiencies.
    • If you have questions about this form, please email Staci Bickhaupt (
