How To Apply to the Master's in Special Education LBS II Program

Download the Graduate Studies application or request an application from our office (call 708.239.3900). Complete the application entirely.
Request your official grade transcripts from all colleges/universities that you have attended. (Note: transcripts must be official. No copies/faxes accepted). Although coursework may have been transferred from one institution to another, original transcripts from ALL institutions are required.

If you have attended college outside of the United States, those transcripts will need to be evaluated by Educational Credential Evaluators Inc. For information, visit their web site: http://www.ece.org/
Obtain two letters of recommendation, including one from a principal or supervisor.

Submit application, application fee ($50), a copy of your official grade transcripts, and a copy of your LBS I certificate or an LBS II certificate in Deaf and Hard of Hearing or Visual Impairments to:

Trinity Christian College
Graduate Studies Department
6601 West College Drive
Palos Heights, IL 60463

If you have met the necessary requirements, the Graduate Studies office will contact you to schedule a time to come to campus to complete a brief writing sample. Once the writing sample is completed, a personal interview with the special education department will be scheduled.
With the approval of the special education department, an acceptance packet will be mailed to you. You will be admitted to the program, pending the receipt of your $300 tuition deposit, which guarantees your seat in our program. It is not refundable, but it is deductible from your first tuition invoice. If the deposit is not received by the date indicated, your seat may be forfeited.
