Students may become eligible for both elementary and secondary level principal certifications by completing two internships, but in three semesters (a total of 6 graduate hours and while within the program). To be eligible for PK-12 building level certifications, 500 on-site hours and 100 in-class hours must be completed. Specific activities and expectations are provided to students by their internship advisor. When completing activities for both levels, there are activities that can be counted for each, meaning that students can "double dip," with activities that are universal to the practice of building level principal.

Applicants are required to meet two sets of minimum qualifications for admission: the requirements of the MEd in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis and the minimum requirements of the Office of Graduate Studies. Because requirements vary, you must refer to a degree program's graduate admission page to learn about specific admission criteria, application deadlines, eligibility and application process. Your application materials will be reviewed by both the Office of Graduate Studies and the degree program to which you’ve applied before official admission to the University of Missouri.
