Rackham School of Graduate Studies (Rackham) (as are most non-professional graduate degrees at the university). Rackham offers a host of resources and support to help see you through from submitting your application to completion of your degree. We encourage you to follow these steps to begin the application process.

Schedule an appointment to meet with our Recruitment Coordinators to learn more about the next steps to becoming a teacher candidate. 

Complete a Request for a Coursework Evaluation. Submit the request for a coursework evaluation along with accompanying transcript(s) prior to submitting all other application materials.

Note that an evaluation may take four weeks to be completed.
