Time Considerations

Candidates for a master’s degree in the School of Education must complete the program within a maximum of five years from the date of matriculation. Students may be granted a leave of absence by permission of their adviser and with the approval of the Office of Educational Services for serious illness, maternity, or military leave. In such cases, the time limit is extended by the duration of the leave, not to exceed one year.

Students exceeding the time limit may be required to repeat courses that have expired and take more than the number of credits normally required for the degree. Course credits more than five years old when the degree is to be awarded are not applicable to the degree unless a time extension is granted.

All graduate students are expected to demonstrate competence in the use of technology. Most programs require passing the School of Education technological competency assessment before graduation.

NYSED requires all teacher and pupil personnel candidates for NYS certification to complete the Dignity for All Students Act workshop as part of graduation requirements. The School of Education offers these workshops at periodic times throughout the year.
