Graduate Pathway in Special Education (Early Childhood Education)

Students who successfully complete an INTO Mason Graduate Pathway or Graduate Bridge Program in Special Education are assured progression to a Mason graduate degree program upon submission of additional required application materials.

Upon successful completion of an INTO Mason Pathway program and meeting university requirements for graduate admission, you may enter your next semester of graduate study at George Mason University. This transition from an INTO Mason Pathway program to a university degree program is called 'progression'.
