Submitting an Application

It is recommended that an Application to the Master of Science program be submitted at least one month prior to the start of classes. All applications and requested materials (i.e., application fee, transcripts) should be submitted to the LIU Brentwood Graduate Admissions Office.

To apply for admission please follow these steps:

1. Long Island University Online Application for Admission

Applicants to the M.S. in Childhood Education must complete the  Online Application for Admission. The application can be obtained by clicking on the above link or selecting the Apply Now button in the upper right-hand corner of this page. A print version of the Application for Admissions can be downloaded from our website. You can also request that a graduate application be mailed to you by calling 631-273-5112 or emailing

2. Transcripts

Submit official undergraduate and/or graduate transcript with a 2.5 overall and 2.75 in major grade point average. Applicants who will have not completed their degrees prior to admission deadlines should submit a transcript without the final semester’s grades. Such applicants may be accepted pending receipt of their final degree noted transcripts. Submit one copy of official transcripts from all other institutions attended, including other graduate programs. If you hold a degree from outside the United States your official records of all post-secondary education must be translated by an approved organization such as World Education Services (WES). You may purchase this translation by contacting WES, or telephone at 1-800-937-3895. Request a course-by-course translation with conversion of all grades into a U.S.4- point scale with U.S. degree equivalencies. This translation must be received by the Office of Admissions in an envelope sealed by WES.

3. Proof of English (For International Students)

In addition to the requirements listed above, students who do not hold a United States bachelor’s degree must submit official score results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). The required minimum acceptable TOEFL score is: 79 Internet-based (213 computer-based or 550 paper-based) or minimum IELTS score: 6.5. International students whose native language is English, or who have attended for at least two years an accredited College or University where the only medium of instruction is English, may have the English Language proficiency requirement waived. The waiver is determined on an individual basis following a review of the student’s application. Students whose English Language proficiency is below the required minimum score but who are academically admissible will be “Conditionally Admitted” to the program and required to first complete LIU Post’s English Language Institute prior to enrolling in any academic coursework.
