Accelerated Preparation Program Track


The Accelerated Preparation Program (APP) is designed for students who already have a master’s degree and want to receive a Utah administrative license. Students admitted to this track take fewer courses (up to 9 credits fewer), and still complete the state-required 450-hour internship and a second Master's degree. Coursework and internships are designed to be completed in 12 to 16 months, but can take longer as needed. We accept up to 15 APP admitted students a year. Those interested in the APP application option do not need to submit graduate exam scores in order to be admitted, but will fill out the same Graduate Studies Application as LPP and ExSL candidates.

Cohorts alternate which days most courses are offered. If a cohort meets mainly on Monday and Wednesday evenings (4:00–7:00 p.m.), then the next cohort (entering the next year) meets mainly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings (4:30–7:30 p.m.). Thus, the first year curriculum and the second year curriculum are offered on different evenings, allowing students increased flexibility to design their curricular path.
