• Administrative License Admission Requirements

    Applicants must have a master's degree, hold a teaching license, and have three years of teaching experience.

    To apply for admission to the Administrative Licensure program, please submit the following:

    • Online application (no fee).
    • Official transcript of coursework from each regionally-accredited college or university attended. This should be sent directly from the institution to Graduate Admission or provided in a sealed, signed envelope. You do not have to supply transcripts for courses taken at Hamline University.
    • One-page personal statement addressing the question, "Why do you aspire to be an educational leader?"
    • Professional résumé or curriculum vitae.
    • Three letters of recommendation from individuals familiar with your academic and/or professional history detailing your specific qualifications to pursue advanced study. Letters must be sent directly to Graduate Admission by the persons writing the recommendations.
    • Copy of your state's teaching license.


    Strong preference is given to qualified applicants who complete the admission requirement at least six weeks prior to the start of the terms. Applicants will also be considered if they have completed the admissions requirements at least two weeks prior and space is available. International students have earlier deadlines.
