Education and Human Services—Educational Leadership Classroom Teacher Programs

Admission

In addition to meeting requirements for admission established by the School of Graduate Studies (these requirements can be reviewed at this Web site http://www.wright.edu/academics/catalog/grad/admissions/), candidates for these degrees who do not meet the minimum cumulative GPA requirement to waive the GRE or MAT, must submit satisfactory Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Miller Analogies Test (MAT) scores, unless otherwise noted (see see Waiver of GRE/MAT).

All students considering graduate-level courses in education and human services should do so with the understanding that graduate study differs in quality expectations from undergraduate study. Graduate study requires that students be increasingly self directed and possess strong analytical skills. Students are not guaranteed a master’s degree by attending and completing courses. Exit requirements must be met in all programs.

Admission to the College of Education and Human Services is based on the candidate’s written statement of purpose, consideration of undergraduate and/or graduate cumulative grade point average, submission of satisfactory scores on either the MAT, GRE, and letters of reference.

Technology Policy
For admission to the college, all College of Education and Human Services students, graduate and undergraduate, part-time and full-time, will be expected to certify that they own or have access to a computer and the Internet.

In order to meet the mission of the college “…to prepare professionals to meet the educational and human services needs of a diverse, democratic society,” it is necessary for our students to play an active role in the technological environment the college and Wright State University are creating to assist in the completion of this mission. An increasing number of classes and options will become available to students using a variety of distributed learning formats; library resources are available in a growing number of full-text formats, and global connections via telecommunications will be part of daily operations. Students preparing to become professionals in education and human service areas must demonstrate appropriate and effective skills and knowledge in technological aspects of their work.

Minimum equipment requirements are recommended by Wright State University’s Computing and Telecommunications Services (CaTS). Please check the following Web Site http://www.wright.edu/cats/purchase/pcguidelines.html for current information about minimum equipment requirements.

The college supports Macintosh computers in faculty and staff offices and maintains a computer lab. Wright State University has purchased a site license for most Microsoft software (see the Web page for Wright State’s Computing and Telecommunications Services, http://www.wright.edu/cats/ for details).

Admission Standards
Admission into regular status requires an overall undergraduate grade point average of 2.7 (based on a 4.0 grading system) or an overall undergraduate grade point average of 2.5, but with a 3.0 or better for the last 90 quarter hours (60 semester hours) earned toward the undergraduate degree. Admission into this status also requires approval by a degree program.

Candidates with a grade point average of less than 2.3 on a 4.0 grading system are not ordinarily admitted to graduate school. A petition process is available to formally request admissions not having met an admission standard. Candidates for admission to certain programs in the Departments of Educational Leadership and must meet additional requirements, which include letters of reference.

Waiver of GRE/MAT
Candidates to Educational Leadership master’s degree programs, may not be required to submit passing GRE or MAT scores if their cumulative undergraduate GPA is a 3.0 or higher.

Provisional
Under certain conditions, a student may be admitted provisionally (for one quarter only), pending receipt of credentials. If admission requirements are not met during the quarter in which a student was admitted provisionally, registration for future quarters will be denied and the student will lose graduate credit for any graduate courses completed during the quarter.

Conditional
Students who have an undergraduate grade point average of 2.5 or better, or who have an average between 2.3 and 2.5 with 2.7 or better in the last half of undergraduate work, may be granted conditional admission.

Regular admission to the College of Education and Human Services is granted after successful completion of 12 hours of course work with a grade of B or better in each course.

Licensure Candidate
Students who wish to complete licensure requirements at the graduate level but do not wish to pursue a graduate degree may be admitted as licensure candidates with the permission of the department in which the programs are housed. Persons pursuing a library media specialist license are required to complete the Ohio Department of Education prescribed Praxis II(s) exam for their intended area of licensure.

Nondegree Status
Persons who have a bachelor’s degree may enroll in nondegree status for graduate courses without being admitted to a graduate program. If you are accepted into degree status at a later date, a maximum of one-half (50 percent) of the graduate hours required for completion of degree requirements may consist of applicable graduate courses completed in nondegree status.
