Selection of a university and graduate program of study is an important decision. Therefore, prospective students are required to meet and consult with a departmental faculty advisor as part of the application process. Students should schedule an appointment to discuss career goals and special circumstances with a member of the faculty as soon as possible by calling 719-255-4996 or email@example.com. This meeting will also serve as an admissions interview for the program.
The Department of Special Education begin their academic program each year beginning in June. Students are chosen during the spring semester for admission the following summer. Up to nine hours of approved coursework may be completed as an Unclassified Student or as a transfer student prior to admission. Successful completion of Unclassified Student or Transfer Student coursework does not ensure admission to the program. Consult with a faculty member about courses you wish to take as an unclassified student or to transfer, as certain rules apply to these courses.
To be considered for admission to the Special Education program, prospective students must complete the following procedures:
