Admission to Program
Candidates desiring admission to the Masters Degree in Educational Leadership program begin by completing an application for and obtaining Northeastern Illinois University’s Student at Large (SAL) designated status. This status allows students to enroll in up to three courses without full admission to the Graduate School. Students admitted as a SAL then use the program’s first introductory course, LEAD 424 (Introduction to the Evaluation of Certified & Support Staff), to complete the Graduate School application as the class professor provides time to assist students with the details of the formal program application process. The student may also apply directly for admission to the program by completing the program’s application.
