CORE COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION - SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY
Allstudents enrolled in the School of Education graduate programs must pass the Core Examination as a requirement for graduation. All students who have successfully completed at least two of the Core courses and who are officially enrolled in the third are eligible to take the Core Examination. An application to take the Comprehensive Examination must be filed in the School of Education and Psychology and approved by the Chairperson or designee before the examination date.
Students eligible to take the Area Examination should contact their advisor or department chairperson.
If a student fails to make the required cut-off score on the GRE (Analytical Writing 3.0), GMAT (Analytical Writing 3.5) or PRAXIS I (Writing Component 172), he or she is admitted as a conditional student.During the first semester of enrollment in graduate school, the student must satisfy writing requirements set forth by his/her department. Each student should contact the department chair to inquire how this requirement can be met . This is a graduation requirement and must be satisfied before a student applies for candidacy and submits an application for degree. If a student fails to satisfy the writing requirement within the first or second semester of enrollment, a "Hold"will be placed on the student's account which will prevent a student from registering for future semesters. Once the writing requirement has been satisfied, the "Hold" will be lifted which will allow the student to register for the next term.
