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.

There are three steps to completing application to Spokane MIT programs, which are described below. These steps include applying to the WSU graduate school, providing supplemental materials to the MIT Program, and submitting official documentation of basic skills and content exams. 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 February 15.
