The Master of Arts in Teacher Leadership (MTL) program is a 40 credit hour degree program. Degree requirements include 20 credit hours of required coursework and 20 credit hours of elective coursework.
Students must apply to UIS before it is possible to enroll in courses. To be eligible, a student must have completed a bachelor’s degree with a grade-point average of 3.00 or better on a 4.00 scale. A student can be conditionally admitted if the GPA is between 2.50 and 2.99. Conditional admission means the student must achieve a GPA of 3.00 or better in the first eight hours of course work in the MTL program. If a student achieves the required GPA within those first eight hours, he or she will be fully admitted to the program.
Transfer credit is evaluated on a course-by-course basis with the MTL Coodinator/Adviser and approval of the Department of Educational Leadership (EDL) Chair. Transfer credit is requested by submitting a student petition form (pdf) accompanied with an official transcript and supporting documentation detailing course outcomes and requirements.
