Individuals who hold a master’s degree in special education can apply for certification only as the UA Graduate College will not award a second master’s degree in special education. Admission requirements for certification only are identical to the master’s degree but transcripts, letters of recommendation and the statement of purpose/autobiographical essay are submitted directly to Dr. Shirin Antia. An online application for the status of non-degree student is submitted to the Graduate College.
