Transcript Analysis Process
A transcript analysis determines the content area prerequisites you may be required
to complete in addition to MAT program course work. While an analysis can be completed
when application materials are received, prior completion of the analysis allows for
a quicker admissions decision.
Please send a brief cover letter stating your intended area of concentration along
with your name, mailing address, email address and telephone number. Also include
an official or unofficial copy of your transcripts from all two- and four-year colleges/universities
you have attended. If you submit official transcripts to the MAT office, they will
be shared with the Graduate Admissions office.
Transcript analysis requests can be emailed to mat AT_TOWSON or mailed to:
MAT Program Coordinator
College of Education
8000 York Road
Towson, MD 21252
You will receive written notification of your transcript analysis results via email.
Any missing content area prerequisites required for the program will be identified. To
see the content checklists for each area, visit the Admissions Requirements & Deadlines page.
In order to join the One-Year option for General Education or the Accelerated Option
for Special Education, you must have all but two content area prerequisites completed.
It is highly recommended that you request a transcript analysis at least two semesters
prior to the start of either program. This will give you time to complete any prerequisite
content course(s) and be eligible for admission to the programs.
