Eligibility
This program may not be available to all applicants. The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and its online programs must be authorized in all states prior to offering those courses or programs to students residing in those states.  See if the program is available in your state here.
 
International students also may not be eligible. According to U.S. immigration regulations, F-1 students cannot pursue online degrees; international students in other visa categories (i.e., H-4, L2) are exempt from this restriction.  Learn more here.
 
*Applicants who receive the GRE waiver will be required to submit an essay of no less than 500 words that speak to the applicant's potential to be a teacher leader.  The essay is purposely non-prescriptive but must include a representative narrative that addresses how the applicant epitomizes or envisions the role of teacher leaders.
 
**Distance Learning students may opt out of immunization. Also not required if you attended UL Lafayette for undergraduate or advanced coursework.
