College of Education & Health Professions


The Faculty and Administration of the College of Education & Health Professions, in response to the challenging year that we have all had, are waiving the GRE requirement for Graduate admissions for the year (Summer, Fall and Spring 2021-22). We recognize that people may still have difficulty finding the resources and locations to take the GRE and wanted to respond to these challenges.

Join us to make a difference in your community and the world.

There’s a common thread that joins us all—students, faculty, and staff—within the College of Education & Health Professions: we like to help people. It’s a passion of ours. It’s what drives us to teach and to learn and to strive to make a difference in people’s lives.

Our faculty are experts in their fields and experienced instructors. Our graduates are certified, compassionate teachers, community- and corporate-organization professionals, and health practitioners and advocates.
