    Minimum Standards and Progress Toward the Master's Degree

    A minimum of thirty (30) graduate credits must be completed in the Master of Science (M.S.) 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 M.S. degree program must be completed within five (5) years from the date of admission to the program. Failure to complete the program in 5 years will result in the student being declared "inactive." Students declared "inactive" will be ineligible to take the Master's Examination and receive the degree 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 M.S. 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.
