Application checklist

Selection process

Admission to the Inclusive Elementary Educators program is selective and competitive. Each application receives a thorough review from the admissions committee. High values are placed on interpersonal skills, academic achievement, course work preparation, potential to meet the needs of pupils, collaboration skills, time management and organization, and successful experience with children (with and without disabilities). A goal of Portland State University's Graduate School of Education is to attract academically able students who reflect diverse cultural backgrounds and who seek to work with children of varying abilities. Applicants are interviewed by a team of faculty members and educators from the field.
