It is recommended that students submit their applications after they have consulted with their program advisor. Please make note of the following considerations related to timely degree completion:
- Students must have passed the comprehensive exam or its equivalent, or have been cleared to take it in the application semester.
- All degree requirements must be completed by the end of the semester of graduation, including the removal of all incomplete (I), missing (M), and continuing (Z) grades.
- Submit all applicable official test scores before the end of the semester of graduation. These must be received for all degree programs requiring them, (e.g. Florida Teacher Certification Exam, Florida Educational Leadership Examination, etc.).
- Statements of course currency must be provided for all courses that have exceeded the University’s stated time limits.
Additionally, all students must be registered for at least two (2) graduate credit hours during the semester in which they have applied for graduation.
