#1 You Must Select Bachelor’s for the Application Type

The example bellow is for the 2021 application cycle – you will choose which ever year you plan to begin classes.

  • If you have a bachelor’s degree, you will begin by selecting the Bachelor’s (Undergraduate Level) option even though you have already completed your Bachelor’s degree. If you select Master’s (Graduate Level), the Instructional Technology Certificate will not be listed.
  • If you do not yet have a bachelor’s degree, you will also begin by selecting the Bachelor’s (Undergraduate Level) option.
