PhD Final Notes on Admission Requirements

The LTEC doctoral program does not require that students enter with a Master’s degree in Educational Technology or a related field, but students with a Master’s in another field and lacking an educational technology background may be required to complete additional coursework to meet expected competencies.

Note that applications cannot be processed until all the required documentation has been received by UHM. It is therefore recommended that applicants begin well before the final deadline. You do not need to complete the GRE requirement before sending other materials. However, we recommend taking the GRE no later than February keeping in mind we cannot process your application until we receive GRE scores.

Admission is competitive for the limited number of openings, so potential students are encouraged to prepare materials carefully and completely. Meeting minimum requirements does not ensure admission.
