Prior to beginning the practicum or internship, a graduate degree candidate must complete a Program Completion/Degree Audit Form (GS4)
and return to the Office of Graduate Studies with his/her faculty advisor's signature. The Office of Graduate Studies will audit the form to insure that required courses have been completed and that the candidate has maintained a 3.0 GPA (B average) for the sequence of courses.
Once the GS4 is approved, the graduate degree candidate will complete the Intent to Graduate Form (GS5)
and return it to the Office of Graduate Studies.
At the end of EDFD 879 Master's Seminar in Education when the degree candidate has successfully completed the degree portfolio, he/she will also receive and complete a survey from the Office of Graduate Studies. This survey requires the graduate candidate to complete a self-assessment based on content knowledge, pedagogical skills, and dispositions related to the program's conceptual framework and national standards of the SPA.
