  • Clear Renewable Georgia Teaching Certificate OR Departmentally Approved Equivalent - All official state-approved teaching certifications are accepted.

The School of Instructional Technology & Innovation recognizes and appreciates that many independent and 21st century learning environments do not require educators to hold traditional status teaching certification. In such instances, the School will make a case-by-case determination as to whether the educator's qualifications are sufficiently equivalent to a traditional teaching certificate and/or whether the educator has the background necessary to ensure successful completion of the program.
  • Professional Resume - Can be uploaded into the online application. A professional resume documenting statement of purpose for wanting the degree, education, and full-time teacher or leader positions in K-12. Other information such as volunteer and service accomplishments and record of leadership activities are also welcome. At least one year of full-time teaching experience is preferred but not required, as the MEd incorporates coaching educators to integrate technology. Current full-time employment as a K-12 professional educator or access to a K-12 educational setting is required to complete field-based assessments and experiences.
  • Mentor Form - If seeking GaPSC certification, applicants must obtain and submit a Mentor form indicating support from a qualified mentor who meets the GaPSC Mentor Requirements.
