Submitting an Application for Admission
It is recommended that an Application for Admission to the Master of Science in Educational Technology program be submitted at least one month prior to the start of classes. All applications and requested materials (i.e. application fee, transcripts, personal statement) should be submitted to the LIU Post Graduate Admissions Processing Center.
To apply for admission, please follow these steps.

2. Application Fee
Mail a non-refundable application fee of $50 by either check or money order (made payable to Long Island University) or contact the Bursar to submit fee via credit card. Please write your name on the check or money order, if that is your preferred method of payment. International applicants must pay the fee in U.S. dollars by sending an international money order or check. You can also pay by credit card by printing the Credit Card Authorization form on the Bursar website or by calling 516-299-2323. Cash, international postal money orders or Eurochecks are not accepted.
Submit official undergraduate and/or graduate transcript with a GPA of 2.5 overall and 2.75 in major or higher. Applicants who will have not completed their degrees prior to admission deadlines should submit a transcript without the final semester's grades. Such applicants may be accepted pending receipt of their final degree noted transcripts. Submit one copy of official transcripts from all other institutions attended, including other graduate programs.
International students should refer to the International Admissions Website for transcript requirements.
4. Personal Statement
Submit a brief statement describing your reason for pursuing graduate study in educational technology. What are your hopes and personal goals you would like to achieve? You may submit this statement as part of the Online Application for Admission, or follow at a later date as a hard copy.
5. International Students
In addition to the requirements listed above, international applicants must submit official score results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The required minimum acceptable TOEFL score is: 79 Internet-based (213 computer-based or 550 paper-based) or minimum IELTS score: 6.5. International students whose native language is English, or who have attended for at least two years an accredited College or University where the only medium of instruction is English, may have the English Language proficiency requirement waived. The waiver is determined on an individual basis following a review of the student's application. Students whose English Language proficiency is below the required minimum score but who are academically admissible will be "Conditionally Admitted" to the program and required to first complete LIU Post's English Language Institute prior to enrolling in any academic coursework.
