Each Graduate must have an academic grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.00(B Avg). In addition, all candidates for graduation must take and pass the Final Written Comprehensive Examination or submit and defend a thesis in the area of study. A capstone course of Applied Action Research is also required.
A student in the MSED program who does not maintain a 3.0 GPA will be dismissed from the program. In addition, a student who fails to achieve satisfactory scores on the program’s key assessments, including an assessment of dispositions, will be counseled and provided with a professional development plan. Failure to complete the plan satisfactorily or failure to improve assessment scores in any succeeding semester will also result in the student’s dismissal from the program.
