It appears that there is some confusion on forms; quite a few students have tried to apply for Portfolio by using the Application for Admission to Candidacy form. If you need to apply for Portfolio, please go to this link: Apply for Portfolio and complete the online form. The form will document your request and will give me the information that I need to confirm that you are eligible to apply for portfolio.
If you have earned 18 credits to date, then you really do need to apply for admission to candidacy for your MET degree.
To submit the Application for Admission to Candidacy (AAC) complete the form at this link: Application for Admission to Candidacy, following the in-form instructions. You will need to list all 11 courses that you will need to meet your degree requirements: 5 core courses (EDTECH 501-505), 5 electives (your choice) and the culminating activity, EDTECH 592-Portfolio. Your Academic Advisement Report, accessed from within your Student Center, is a big help in completing this form.
Any time you're confused about processes or procedures, please take the time to ask; we're happy to help!
