Enrollment Restrictions by State
Walden currently cannot enroll residents of the following states/districts into the Education Specialist (EdS) program: New Mexico.
Note on educator licensure or certification: This program does not lead to educator licensure or certification. Educators are advised to contact their individual school districts as to whether this program may qualify for salary advancement.
Prospective Alabama students: State authorization to provide a program related to the preparation of teachers or other P–12 school/system personnel does not indicate eligibility for an Alabama professional educator or professional leadership certificate. Applicants who complete an educator preparation program at a non-Alabama institution must apply for an Alabama professional educator or professional leadership certificate through the Alabama Certificate Reciprocity Approach. Current requirements may be found at www.alsde.edu.
The EdS in Educational Leadership and Administration (Principal Licensure Preparation) program was one of the four Walden education programs reviewed during the CAEP accreditation process; the program was also among the three Walden programs reviewed by Specialized Professional Associations (SPAs), which defines content-area standards for programs, and has achieved national recognition. The program is designed for educators who want to become a principal or administrator at the education specialist (post-master’s) level.
