Frequently Asked Questions

Can I work while I complete the program?

The MEd in Educational Leadership (K-12) program was designed to be completed while you work.

What modality options are there for the MEd in Educational Leadership program?

You may choose an online or hybrid format for your MEd in Educational Leadership. The online option gives you the flexibility to complete all coursework entirely online.

Do I need to live in Pennsylvania to pursue the Principal Certification?

To enroll in the Principal Certification program, students must be enrolled in the hybrid format of this program and reside in the state of Pennsylvania and complete their Principal Certification coursework on campus. We recommend that students located in other states review their state’s Principal Certification requirements.

Yes. You may enroll in the Principal Certification coursework, but it must be taken in person.

Do you offer financial aid?

Yes! Financial aid is available for all graduate students — regardless of whether they study part time or full time, online or on campus. Students are encouraged to request federal and state financial aid by completing their FAFSA.
