Minimum Standards and Progress Toward the Educational Specialist Certificate

A minimum of sixty (60) graduate credits must be completed in the Educational Specialist Certificate Program with an overall GGPA of at least 3.00. The student must maintain a minimum overall 3.00 GGPA in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis courses at all times.

The Educational Specialist Certificate Program must be completed within seven (7) years from the date of admission to the program. Failure to complete the program in 7 years will result in the student being declared "inactive." Students declared "inactive" will be ineligible to take the final oral examination and receive the certificate until a new graduate program has been approved by the Department and any new or different program or examination requirements then in effect have been met.

Students declared "inactive" for three (3) years may be dropped from the Specialist program. Students who have been dropped must seek readmission to a specific degree program in the Department and meet all existing admission, program, and examination requirements.
