Curriculum & Instruction or Teacher Leadership: Application Process

Here are the items you will need to submit to formally apply to one of our education programs at Marylhurst. As you review the list, know that we’re here to help you if you have any questions about the required materials for admissions. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

  • Complete our online application (for academic division, select graduate and for program of study – select education professional development)
  • Along with the application, you will also submit:
    • Resume (with a clear career goal stated)
    • Official transcript from all colleges and universities attended.
    • Statement of intent

Official Transcripts
Official transcripts must be received by Marylhurst University in the original unopened envelope or through approved electronic means from the originating institution. Sounds very legal, but it’s pretty straightforward: contact your previous institutions and request an official transcript to be sent directly to Marylhurst: 17600 Pacific HWY, PO Box 261, Marylhurst, OR 97036-0261. Official transcripts can also be sent via a secure delivery service such as National Student Clearinghouse, eSCRIP-SAFE, or Parchment. Directions on how to do this will also be available within the online admissions application.

Statement of Intent
This is a brief essay in which you introduce yourself and share information about your academic goals and experiences. This is not a formal academic or research paper, but it should be proofread for errors and grammar to ensure readability. This essay may be used as part of the scholarship consideration process at Marylhurst University. Please write a one-to-two page paper in 12pt. font. Make sure to include your name in the top, right-hand corner of each page. Please address the following questions:

  • Why have you chosen your course of study? If undecided, please comment on your area(s) of interest.
  • Why have you chosen Marylhurst University?
  • How does this degree fit into your past/current life experiences and future goals?

To submit the statement, you can upload it inside the online application portal, or email it to admissions@marylhurst.edu or FAX it to 503.699.6320.
