Apply to the MiT Program

Prepare to enter the Master in Teaching program and learn how your application is evaluated.

Due to the changing nature of COVID-19, please contact us to confirm current admissions requirements.

The Evergreen State College is following the Governor’s Safe Start plan and observation and volunteer experience should be pursued through remote interaction when possible. Should the state progress to a safe start phase that allows small group in-person gathering, all safety expectations (i.e., social distancing, healthy monitoring, contact tracking) should be followed. If we hear that schools continue to be impacted by COVID-19 when they reopen in the fall we will waive the observation and volunteer requirement. Please check back in September for updated information.

Applications for spring or summer 2021 open May 1. Priority reviews of applications will take place September 1. The application deadline is November 1. 


We have two options available for students to apply to the MiT program, one for graduate level and another for undergraduate level students enrolled at Evergreen:

  • Graduate Degree Option– this option is our traditional option for applying to enter into our program as a graduate level student.
  • Undergraduate/Graduate Degree Combined Degree Option – Evergreen has moved forward with creating the option for graduate programs to provide an Undergraduate/Graduate Combined Degree option for current Evergreen undergraduate students. MiT is excited to be launching this option beginning next Spring!
