Master of Arts in Education Department of Elementary Education Probationary Admission Policy (Revised 9/3/02)
The Department will consider probationary admission to the MAE in the Elementary Education Program if:
Students admitted on probationary status must earn at least a final grade of "B" in each of the three graduate courses identified by the Department to obtain admission to the graduate program. Probationary graduate students will not be permitted to register for any courses in the program until official GRE scores are received and the Department course requirements have been recorded at the Graduate School.
The faculty members of the Department of Elementary Education recognize the need for the graduate students to be successful while completing the content and work of a sixteen-week semester in a compressed summer session or workshop schedule. Therefore, the following policy has been adopted.
A graduate student will be limited to no more than a twelve-semester hour course load during a summer session.
A graduate student will not be permitted to complete the twelve hours in less than seven weeks.
A graduate student may not enroll in three regular classes in a five-week session if the nine hours include a regular class and two workshops that do not overlap in scheduled weeks.
A graduate student may not take two regular classes and a workshop during a five-week term.
The faculty members of the Department recognize that the limited number of school placements available make registration in these classes difficult for all undergraduate students in the program.
Therefore, the Department will permit students to enroll no more than two times in EDEL 100, EDEL 200, EDEL 300, EDEL 301, EDEL 350, EDEL 351, EDRDG 400, and EDRDG 430.
The Department of Elementary Education has adopted a policy of limiting any student to two attempts (enrollments) for successful completion of each of the professional courses taught by the faculty of the Department. These classes are EDEL 100, EDEL 200, EDEL 300, EDEL 301, EDEL 350, EDEL 351, EDRDG 400, and EDRDG 430. A withdrawal from the class is counted as an enrollment.
If a student believes that s/he should be permitted to enroll a third time in one of the limited courses, the student will complete the following steps. The student may not enroll in the class until the appeal procedure is completed.
