How to Apply

Admissions

Students at Discovery Park

Application Process

You must first apply to the Toulouse Graduate School. The application can be obtained on-line. Upon acceptance to the Toulouse Graduate School you are responsible for reading the Graduate Catalog in the following areas:

  1. Master's degree process at UNT.
  2. Section on Learning Technologies (LT) Master's programs and degree plans.
  3. Overview of the course descriptions for the Master'sin Workforce Learning & Performance.

The WLP faculty will review all materials. A letter will be sent to you indicating their decision. Admission decisions are made during the fall and spring semesters only. A decision will be made by the end of the semester in which WLP receives your application from the Toulouse Graduate School. Summer applicants will be notified by the end of the fall semester.

Individuals who do not meet all of the required educational and work experience qualifications will be required to take leveling courses in addition to the courses required

Once you have been accepted into the WLP program, you should contact the WLP Master's advisor so that an official degree plan can be completed and submitted to the Graduate School.

The faculty will be looking for such things as:

Relevant work experience (Career and Technology Education, corporate training) Certification(s) held Publications/writings Presentations Involvement in professional associations Leadership involvement and potential

If you have checked WLP as your major on the Toulouse Graduate School application, your GPA will be reviewed. If you have recorded a GRE score with the Graduate School, the score will be sent to the ATPI program with your application. If your last 60 hours of course work or cumulative Bachelor's GPA is 3.0 or higher or if your overall Master's GPA is 3.5 or higher, we do not require a standardized entrance exam score (GRE, MAT, GMAT, etc.) for MS in WLP. If your last 60 hours of course work GPA is 2.6 – 2.9, you may be conditionally admitted without test scores based on a review of your application materials. Conditional acceptance requires that you maintain a B average in your first 12 hours of graduate course work numbered 5000 or higher to remain in graduate status. This information can be found under the Admission section of this page.

Non-Degree Student

Without the official admission application, you should apply to the Toulouse Graduate School as a non-degree student. As a non-degree student, you are allowed to take up to 12 credit hours of graduate courses before having to submit the official admission application to the Toulouse Graduate School. Make certain that the courses you take are listed on the degree plan for the Master's degree that you are seeking.

Once the official admission application is submitted, your application will be sent to our department and you will be considered for acceptance into the WLP program. It is highly recommended that you take no more than 3 credit hours. The reason for this is so that you do not accrue too many credit hours before you are officially admitted to the program. In the past students have taken several courses but have been unable to meet the admission requirements to the WLP program. There is no guarantee that you will be admitted to the WLP program just because you have been admitted to the Toulouse Graduate School. All programs at UNT have different admissions criteria. The course that you take during this time must fit into the WLP Master's degree plan that you are seeking. This degree plan is posted on the Learning Technologies website under Current Students.

Once the official admission application is submitted, you must contact the Toulouse Graduate School and have your degree choice changed from non-degree to WLP-MS. Your application will be sent to the Department of Learning Technologies. Submission of your application to the WPL program from the Toulouse Graduate School does not mean automatic acceptance into the program. Other criteria will be reviewed in addition to the GRE score (see Admission section below).

For information regarding your status contact the Toulouse Graduate School at (940) 565-2383.

Admission

Once the WLP program receives your application from the Graduate School, you will receive a request via email for the following information:

A one-page statement of your career goals and how Obtaining a Master's degree in WLP will assist you in meeting these goals (where you are coming from and where you expect the degree to take you).

Inside the Classroom:

As a student, you will gain communication and goal-setting skills for the counseling process, utilizing self-advocacy, psychological, vocational, social and behavioral interventions.

This core curriculum involves preparatory studies in disability, educational and occupational information, counseling and case management and vocational rehabilitation process.

The Department of Disability and Addiction Rehabilitation master’s program offers a traditional on-campus program as well as a distance-learning online program for professionals actively involved in the field. The program is nationally accredited by the Council on Rehabilitation Education (CORE); therefore, the curriculum is designed to meet the requirements for national certification as a rehabilitation counselor (CRC), as well as licensure as a professional counselor (LPC) by the state of Texas.

Outside the Classroom:

The skills obtained by students cannot be solely achieved through the classroom; this is why the master’s program utilizes on-campus and community-based services into the curriculum.

Beyond the classroom, students participate in field-site internship experiences and emphasize on exposure to a broad spectrum of rehabilitation services, professional organizations, interdisciplinary professional activities and advocacy and consumer groups in the field of rehabilitation. Students are required to achieve three hours of practicum and six hours of an internship.
