Next Steps

  • Complete and sign a transcript request form for each college you've attended. Please fax it to 616-222-1408 and the PGS office will order transcripts on your behalf. Please Note: If you are applying for the TESOL program, you must request your own transcripts and have them sent directly to Cornerstone from the issuing institution.
  • If you are not a U.S. citizen, please send a copy of your citizenship documents to the PGS office.
  • If your primary language is not English, a copy of your TOEFL or IELTS test scores must be submitted to the PGS office

Applicants for a Master’s degree must also submit two Letters of Recommendation, one from a current supervisor and one from a person who can comment on the applicant’s academic ability.

TESOL Applicants

If you are applying for the TESOL program, the two Letters of Recommendation should be completed; one letter should be from the applicant’s current employer (an individual with supervisor or managerial relationship to the applicant) and the other from an individual who can comment on the applicant’s academic ability. Also required is a professional resume providing information on the applicant's professional, academic and community achievements.
