Apply to Online Special Education Programs

Our next application deadline is June 1 to be considered for Fall 2024 Semester admission (your classes would begin in late August).

Program Options

Please Note: if you are admitted to the MA only/LD program, you cannot switch to ASD at a later date. The two areas have a distinctly different set of courses and requirements. Similarly, if you are admitted to the MTSS MA program, you cannot switch the MA only, LD, or ASD programs.
