Students accepted to one of the MSED-Literacy program must apply for Degree Candidacy after completing 12-18 credit hours of their program; any course work taken in excess of 18 credits is liable to forfeiture. A GPA of 3.0 or better is required to qualify for degree candidacy status. Submit the completed candidacy application to the Graduate Studies Office; the application and a current transcript is forwarded to the advisor. Students will then receive a letter advising them of their status and the remaining requirements in their program.
The MSED-Literacy program is a 33 credit hour program which includes a minimum of 30 credits of literacy courses. One three-credit course is an elective which may be selected from any graduate department at the College (with advisor approval). All students must successfully complete a culminating exam offered at the end of fall or spring semesters. No culminating exams will be given during summer sessions.
