Graduate Dean’s Signature Date
A degree student may not be admitted to candidacy until:
1) at least twelve semester hours of degree credit have been completed at Edinboro University;
2) an Application for Admission to Candidacy has been filed with the Program Head along with a plan of study, and;
3) the student has made satisfactory progress in her/his degree program.
A student is judged to have made satisfactory progress in the degree program if:
1) she/he has had a personal meeting with the advisor and together with the advisor has completed a Plan of Study for the
master’s degree,
2) she/he has completed any course(s) which the specific degree program requires to be completed within the first twelve
semester hours,
3) a “B” or better average has been earned in the courses completed as part of the degree program, and,
4) no written objection to the student’s admission to candidacy has been received by the Program Head from a faculty member.
(Note: When such an objection is received, this objection will be honored only if the members of “Ad Hoc” Committee,
consisting of the chairperson of the department offering the degree or her or his designee, the student’s advisor, and
the faculty members who have taught degree courses completed by the student, support the objection.)
Students admitted on a conditional basis, who at the conclusion of the semester or summer session in which the twelfth semester hour
has been completed, will be denied permission to continue as degree students in Edinboro Universitys graduate program if they have
failed to earn a cumulative average of “B” or better.
Students admitted on an unconditional basis, who at the conclusion of the semester or summer session in which the twelfth semester
hour has been completed, have failed to earn a cumulative average of “B” or better will be given the opportunity to enroll for six
additional semester hours of credit to attempt to achieve a satisfactory level of progress in their degree program to warrant admission
to candidacy for the master’s degree. Failure to reach a satisfactory level of progress will result in the student being denied permission
to continue as a degree student. An immediate denial of permission to continue as a degree student will be made if it is judged that the
student could not possibly achieve a satisfactory level of progress by completion of an additional six semester hours of credit.
