Most programs have additional requirements* beyond the Grad School application. Review Part 2: Apply to Program for admissions information specific to the PhD in Learning, Design, and Technology.

*For example, you may need to schedule an interview and/or submit additional documents such as writing samples, a CV or resume, or a statement of purpose. Some programs require an official transcript, not just the unofficial transcript as required by the University.
