Applicants must submit all of the items listed below. Applications will be considered upon receipt of all materials. 

  • APPLICATION: A completed Application for Graduate Admission with a $50 non-refundable application fee. Credit card, check or money order made payable to Rollins College.
  • TRANSCRIPTS: Official transcripts of your academic work from all colleges or universities that you attended. This also includes Rollins College, if applicable, regardless of whether or not coursework from one institution is listed on another school transcript. An undergraduate GPA of 3.0+ is recommended.
  • TEST SCORES: Passing scores on the General Knowledge (GK) is not required for admission into the program. If a student enters without passing the GK, they will still earn their degree. However, it will be without the FTCE endorsement. A student may take and pass the GK while enrolled in the program. Students must pass all four subtests (Essay, English Language Skills, Reading, and Mathematics). Please designate Rollins College (Code: 5572) as a recipient of your score report.
  • RECOMMENDATION LETTERS: Three (3) letters of recommendation are required to be submitted via the online application process. Please identify professional and/or academic supporters who know you and can appraise your ability to pursue a graduate degree in this area. Recommendation letters are confidential and will be received electronically via the online application.
  • RESUME: A current resume reflecting current position and/or volunteer experience submitted through the online application.
  • ESSAY: A Statement of Purpose essay of one to two (1-2) pages clarifying your expectations for your MAT graduate studies and why you believe this program is the right fit for you. This essay should be typed and double-spaced submitted via a Word or PDF document through the online application. 


  • Students who have earned degrees from non-English speaking institutions should submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).  A score of at least 550 (paper test) or 213 (computer test)  is required on the TOEFL for admission.
  • Students who are not American citizens must demonstrate appropriate permanent resident or visa status.  Only full-time student status qualifies students for an F1 Visa.
  • Any student that submits a foreign college/university transcript is responsible for having these transcripts sent through an evaluation service for translation.  Josef Silny and Associates, Inc. and WES may be used for evaluation services.
