    Minimum Standards and Progress Toward the Degree



       Maintain an Overall GGPA for 3.00

    A minimum of seventy five graduate credits must be completed in the Doctor of Philosophy degree program with an overall GGPA of at least 3.00. The student must maintain a minimum overall GGPA of 3.00 in educational administration coursework between admission and the time of the Preliminary Examination. 



      Pass Preliminary Examination Within 7 Years From Admission

      Complete Dissertation Within 5 Years of Passing Preliminary Exam



       Maintain Dissertator Status

    The Graduate School requires once a student becomes a dissertator, they maintain continuous enrollment in three graduate credits, no more, no less, each fall and spring semester until completion of the final oral examination.  Summer enrollment is optional unless working with a faculty advisor, utilizing University facilities, or completing the degree.  Three dissertator credits is considered full-time enrollment.
