Semesters in the Educational Technology program is shorter: 13 weeks in fall and spring and about 10 in summer. Follow the Schedule link on the MET Home page. Summer classes are available at both Lawrence Tech and Marygrove.

We recommend students start with Computer Application and Applied Instructional Technology courses. The following classes build on skills that you acquire in these courses.
Please see link for computer requirements on the MET Home page.
Current tuition per course should be checked on the University Registrar site below. There will be a non-need based scholarship awarded to MET students for each 3-credit course that reduces the price of tuition. The final tuition rate is comparable to other Universities in southeast Michigan. For an up-to-date schedule of payments please see the Registrar link: http://www.ltu.edu/registrars_office/. Admission ($50.00) and registration ($115.00) for each semester are waived.
Ten courses (30 credits) are required for the Master degree. For the NP endorsement the requirement is 21 credits. For the Graduate certificate (non-NP) 12 credits are required. Program is self-paced so you are the only one that will decide the number of courses you will take each semester.
You can transfer nine graduate credits in Computer Technology/Instructional Technology or education based on program director approval.
Teachers interested in the NP endorsement have to have a provisional/professional teaching certificate to obtain (add) the NP endorsement through our 21-credits approved program.
Only for the NP endorsement.
NP endorsement approved by the Michigan Department of Education in January 2005.
The degree is awarded by the institution at which the student is admitted: i.e., students that apply at LTU will be awarded the degree by LTU.
