Admission Criteria - Master of Arts in Teaching

An applicant for admission to the Bethany College MAT graduate program must possess a baccalaureate degree from an American college or university accredited by one of the recognized regional accrediting associations, or the equivalent from an international college or university. 

The ordinary standard for regular admission to the MAT program is an undergraduate GPA of at least 2.75 (on a 4.0 scale). Students falling below this level may submit other evidence of their ability to successfully complete a graduate program.

Applicants may be admitted to the Bethany College MAT graduate program in one of the following categories:

Regular Admission

Applicants are admitted under this category when they have satisfied the admissions criteria detailed above. 

Conditional Admission
Applicants are admitted under this category when they have a marginal undergraduate record. Applicants will be permitted to take a maximum of six graduate credits in this admission category. Upon completion of six graduate credits, a conditionally admitted student will either be admitted or denied admission into the MAT program based on his/her performance. 

Provisional Admission
Applicants who do not meet all of the criteria for Regular Admission, but show reasonable promise for success in the MAT program, may be admitted provisionally. Students will be permitted to begin graduate studies while completing admissions deficiencies.
