Admission to the EdD program in K-12 Educational Leadership is selective, based upon student vocational aspirations and a variety of backgrounds, skill sets/aptitudes, and dispositional factors that project potential for successful completion of the program and subsequent success as a transformational K-12 leader. Applicants are sought who are already addressing educational/professional issues or who are motivated to gain the skills and knowledge required to address the complex issues and problems confronting leaders. Therefore, candidates with leadership experience and the demonstrated motivation to serve and lead will receive priority consideration for admission.
All applicants must submit a letter of application, certified university transcripts documenting all degrees conferred, three targeted professional reference letters, current professional resume, and other evidentiary documents. Finally, upon receipt of the above documentation, selected qualified applicants will be invited to participate in two activities at the University: (1) a structured interview with an admissions committee (composed of faculty and practitioners) and (2) the controlled-situation production of a professional writing sample of 1000-1500 words.
Each EdD candidate must first apply to the Baylor University Graduate School in order to enroll in the EdD program.
