ETL Masters Degree: Degree Status

Students may start working toward the ETL Masters Degree in non-degree status during any semester, but they must be admitted prior to starting their second semester. This means that application materials must be submitted to the Admissions Office approximately 4 weeks after starting the program. See below for specific information on admissions deadlines and requirements. Courses taken in non-degree status prior to acceptance as a degree candidate will count as transfer credit, provided the grade of "B", or better, was earned in the course. All transfer credit requests must be submitted to the ETL office for faculty review. Students may not transfer more than 12 credits into their program.

Official transcripts from institutions outside of the United States must be accompanied by an official transcript evaluation from an accredited independent evaluating agency. Please be sure you request a detailed evaluation that includes all course titles, credit hours, grades, grade point average (GPA), United States degree equivalency, and date of degree conferral. Some of the agencies we have worked with include:

·   Educational Credential Evaluators - http://www.ece.org/

Statement of Purpose

In an essay of 250 to 500 words, please state your purpose in undertaking graduate study at The George Washington University. As part of your Statement of Purpose, describe your academic objectives, research interests and career plans. Also discuss your related qualifications, including collegiate, professional and community activities and any other substantial accomplishments not already mentioned on the application form. In addition to following the above guidelines, you should clearly indicate your intended primary and supporting fields of study and describe your research area.

Required Tests

All Masters Degree applications require that you take either the general test of the GRE or the MAT. (For exceptions, see below.) Test scores more than 5 years old will not be considered.
