How To Apply

We require all applicants for the Ed.D. of Leadership and Higher Education to hold a master's degree* from an accredited university. International applicants may be required to submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score to demonstrate English proficiency.

To start your application, follow these steps:


Contact an Enrollment Counselor to discuss your qualifications and interest in the program.


Provide your supplemental materials, including your resume, government-issued ID, letter of intent, two letters of recommendation, and official transcripts from all institutions attended.

St. Edward's University uses a rolling admissions process to evaluate each candidate. Applicants should be expected to be contacted within two business days of their finalized application regarding next steps, and the Admissions Committee should make their decision within two weeks.

* Credit from master's degree programs may be transferable for this program. Contact an Enrollment Counselor for more information.
