Coursework Transfer Policy
Up to 9 graduate credit hours total may transfer to the Ed.D. in C&I. Transfer courses may substitute for the research or concentration core(s) only; transfer courses may not be used for program cohort courses. Transfer may not occur for courses taken more than 7 years prior to candidacy. Students may not transfer courses from a master’s degree program. Candidacy is established upon passing of the comprehensive exam.
Program Academic Regulations
Students enrolled in this program are expected to be working professional educators and as such, their position in the school community will serve as an internship/field experience. Students who are not employed while enrolled will arrange with the Program Coordinator to work in a local setting. Residency requirements are embedded within cohort coursework. Students are required to enroll in cohort courses in sequence with their assigned cohort. Should extenuating circumstances arise, the student’s adviser and the EdD Program Committee will consider and approve or deny alternate sequencing. The formal coursework requirement is satisfied through successful completion of each course in the program of study with a grade of “C” or higher, with an overall cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. Coursework in which a grade below “C” is earned may not be applied to the EdD program.

Interim Upgrade to Level 6: When the Georgia Professional Standards Commission receives a TPMS Program Completion form (and the transcript reflecting the C&I coursework) indicating that an educator is enrolled in the Ed.D. C&I program and has 1) passed the GACE C&I assessment, and 2) submitted and defended an approved prospectus, s/he will qualify to add C&I at level S6 to the certificate.
The educator could then simultaneously qualify for an in-field level S6 based on ABD status which must be verified with 1. an official transcript, 2. Approved Program Completion Form, and 3. completed Alternative Level Six Form. The two forms (Approved Program Completion Form and Alternate Level Six Form) should be submitted to the Office of Academic Assistance, Ms. Basja Tibbs, the OAA Certification Officer.
