* The Department of Education requires that candidates have at least a 3.0 GPA in their last 60 hours of course work.  It is recognized, however, that applicants may want to pursue a graduate program with a prior GPA below 3.0.  Such candidates will be provisionally admitted if all other application criteria have been met and their grades in graduate courses will be monitored each semester.  Provisional Candidates who maintain at least a 3.0 GPA in the first 12 credit hours of course work will be formally admitted to the program.   Once admitted to the graduate program all candidates will be required to meet department criteria for completion of the program.
