Special Degree Requirements

  1. Study Plan: All students must complete a plan of study prior to taking their first course or during their first semester of graduate study. This plan must be with advisement from the Graduate Reading Coordinator or their assigned advisor.
  2. Admission to Candidacy: All students must apply for admission to candidacy through their graduate advisor. A candidacy form will be completed and filed with the advisor and a form will be filed with the Graduate Office. Admission to Candidacy occurs when the student has completed a minimum of 15 credits. Students must have completed the three Professional Core courses (EDUC 603, EDUC 606, and EDUC 640) as part of this admission process and six credits within the program concentration. A cumulative grade point average of 3.0 is required as well as the approval of the advisor and two other faculty members who have taught the student. Transfer courses are not counted toward the 15-18 credits unless they are accepted as equivalent courses and then the grades are not calculated in the GPA. The advisor and the Program Coordinator have the right to require that a student remediate deficiencies even if that requires extra courses or to require that a student be disenrolled from the program based on the student's aptitude and professional growth and potential. If disenrolled, the student has the right to appeal to the Educational Professions Graduate Leadership Team and, if disenrolled, may reapply to the program after one year.
  3. Mentoring Group: All students will be assigned to a Mentoring Group. At the completion of their program, they must provide documentation of participation.
  4. Portfolio: All students must complete a portfolio presentation by the end of their program.
  5. Inservice: All students must develop and deliver an inservice to successfully complete the program. Credit for the development of this inservice is through EDUC 700.
