Selective Retention

To successfully complete the MA and EdS programs in school psychology, you must demonstrate academic, professional, and personal effectiveness related to professional objectives. Initially, M.A. students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, and EdS students must maintain a GPA of at least 3.2, after completing 9 hours of study for courses taken toward their respective degrees.

Additionally, the school psychology faculty meets annually to review all students enrolled in the programs. You will be provided with information on your progress and identified strengths and weaknesses. The faculty offers recommendations on your continuation in the program that may include remedial programming if necessary. Complete procedures are available in the Student Review and Retention Policy (PDF).
