Erikson Institute shares a common desire with our MOA partners to provide high quality educational opportunities to all populations.

Erikson educates those who work with children knowing that all children deserve equitable access to education, services, and a community that supports their health and emotional well-being.

To ensure that our student body reflects our commitment to equity, Erikson Institute extends a warm welcome to students from select colleges and universities with formal partnerships created via a memorandum of agreement (MOA) that facilitate advanced study of early childhood education, child development and social work.

Each MOA was uniquely created to support incoming students. While some details may vary including degree program, each MOA waives the matriculation fee, expedites applications for admission decisions, and may provide financial assistance for admitted students.

Partner colleges/universities include:

      • Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University
      • Saint Xavier University
      • Augustine College
      • Trinity Christian College
      • Tuskegee University

Erikson Institute offers a high-quality education to meet your needs:

      • Financial aid & scholarships available
      • Small class sizes
      • Easy access to faculty and staff
      • Student services from tutoring to career services and more
      • A rich and engaging professional community that continues beyond graduation

With over 50 years of experience in child development and early childhood education, our graduates will understand how critical factors from brain development to public policy influence child well-being. We look forward to working with our partner MOA students to help them grow their expertise and make a bigger impact in their classroom, practice, community, and world.
