  • PhD
  • Doctor of Business Administration (DBA)
  • Credential Collaboration

If you have already taken our Administrative Services Credential Program, you can reduce the coursework needed for this degree even further—from 46 to 34 credits. That means you can get the same quality education in just over 1 year, instead of about 3 years.



  • Hands-On Learning

As with all of Alliant’s programs, field training is paired with classroom learning. You will learn vital theories while also receiving training in effectively directing budgets and finances, allocating resources, and managing staff—preparing you to lead in your career.


  • Two New Tracks 

The Bachelor’s track is a 3-to-4-year program specifically designed to train you past a master’s-level education and through your dissertation and to your doctoral degree.

The Master’s track is a shorter, more specialized format that is designed specifically for those already in possession of a master’s degree.


  • Two New Specializations

Our new EdD in Educational Leadership and Management Degree Program format  is offered with two new specialization tracks in Social Justice Studies and K-12/Charter School Studies; and is only 46 credits long, removing almost a full year from your path to an EdD.


  • Small Classes, Tailored Guidance

The dedication from, and interaction with, our faculty is imperative for success. So, we keep our classes small, which means there are opportunities to connect with your instructor, classmates, and staff. From projects, research, and readings throughout your coursework, to the entire topic of your dissertation, you get guidance from those who have been there before, so you can get where you want to go.


  • Foundational Education

Since you only need your bachelor’s to enter this program, it contains classes that will teach you the foundations of research, analysis, and writing that you will need for your dissertation, and that you would normally find in a master’s-level program.

Application Procedures

Application procedures and requirements.

The following are university-wide general requirements for graduate programs. Please ensure you are prepared to complete and provide supporting documentation for the items below.

Academic Factors

Provide official transcripts that verify:

  1. You have earned a Bachelor’s degree and any other qualifying degrees (as needed) from a regionally accredited university (some programs may consider approved nationally accredited universities). A Master’s degree is required for some doctorate level programs.
  2. You possess a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale unless otherwise stated in the program requirements. The university requires that graduate applicants meet their individual program’s stated GPA minimum requirement for admission. If your undergraduate or applicable graduate GPA is below the stated requirement, you must submit a petition requesting an exemption from this academic requirement. The petition is included in the graduate online application. The application allows you to provide a statement of exception or submit additional material that would document your ability to perform in an intensive academic environment.
  3. You meet all prerequisite course requirements applicable to your program. Contact your admissions counselor for additional information.


Non-Academic Factors

  1. Submit a personal narrative in the form of a 2-4 page essay for Master’s degree programs and a 4-6 page essay for Doctorate degree programs. Essay prompts and guidelines vary by program. 
  2. List two persons who will provide letters of recommendations in support of your application. The recommendations should be from references familiar with your work, your academic abilities, or your potential for scholarship and professional accomplishment. If you have been out of school for several years, please feel free to submit recommendations from persons who are familiar with you on any level of professional involvement.
  3. Include a current resume or curriculum vitae (CV).
  4. Attend an admissions interview if applicable to your program. Interviews for invited finalists differ by program. Programs may be unable to review any applicant who cannot keep an interview appointment. Interviews may take place individually or in a group format. The interviewers may be Alliant faculty and administrators. Final admissions decisions are made after the results of the interviews (if required) have been reviewed.
