Educational Leadership Degree Programs

Want a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership?

NJASBO has entered into affiliation agreements with St. Peters College in Jersey City to provide opportunities for our members to pursue a Masters Degree in Educational Leadership. The colleges have agreed to reduce rates for tuition and have both agreed, upon review, to allow the purchase of credit for the certification classes taken with NJASBO.

St. Peter's College

Master of Arts Educational Leadership

Successful completion of the ASBO Certification Program (145 Clock Hours) may qualify the individual for up to 12 credit hours towards an Educational Leadership degree. The entire certification program must be successfully completed prior to awarding graduate credit. Credits may be purchased at a 50% discount to the current year's tuition rates. Individuals who choose to continue their education at St. Peter's will be entitled to a 25% tuition discount for all future courses leading to a Masters Degree in education taken within five years of the date of the first purchase of credits.
