2 APPLICATION DEADLINES FALL ENROLLMENT JULY 1 SPRING ENROLLMENT NOVEMBER 15 SUMMER ENROLLMENT APRIL 15 Special Education School of Education Thank you for inquiring about Kentucky State University s (KSU) Online Master of Arts in Special Education with a Certification in Learning and Behavior Disorders (MA-LBD, P-12). This packet provides introductory information about the program. The KSU Catalogue and the Special Education Program Policies provide greater detail. The School of Education (SOE) at KSU offers the program. The intent of this program, which is referred to as the ESP program, is to increase the diminished supply of special education teachers by targeting qualified college graduates, including those whose degrees are in fields other than education, and guiding them to move expeditiously through an intensive training and internship experience, become certified special education teachers, and obtain a master s degree. It is designed specifically to lead to teacher certification in the area of Learning and Behavior Disorders (LBD, P-12.) Individuals who are not certified teachers may seek initial teaching certification in LBD and those who are certified in another area may seek an add on certification in LBD. When successful graduates are employed as teachers in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, they are classified and compensated as Rank II. The ESP program is founded on personal student support, high expectations, relevant and practical experiences, and distance learning technology. Candidates are mentored, from the very beginning, in how to succeed in an electronic educational environment and they are provided 24/7/365 support in accessing course content, instructors, and colleagues from wherever a telephone or Internet service is available. This is an accelerated program in which there will be two courses offered per 8-week session during the regular university schedule and two courses offered over the summer semester. It is quite possible to complete the program within 18 months. (See Course Sequencing Chart) PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The ESP program was created for three groups of individuals: those who currently are employed as teachers in P-12, those who have been employed recently as teachers in P-12, and those who never have taught students in P-12. The coursework for all students is the same, unless a student transfers courses from another regionally accredited, post-secondary institution. The only difference in requirements for students with varying experiential backgrounds is the capstone course. Individuals with teaching experience complete a culminating practicum and individuals who have not taught complete student teaching. The two program options are formalized in two Tracks. Track I is designed for students who are or have been teachers of record in accredited schools. With the approval of the Education Graduate Committee, candidates in Track I complete all coursework and then a one-term, capstone practicum course, either ESP 573 (3 credit hours) or ESP 574 (6 credit Hours). The practicum must be completed during fall or spring semester (not summer) and it cannot be completed via independent study. ESP 573 is offered for candidates who currently are full-time teachers of record in classrooms (P-12) that include students with Individual Educations Plans (IEPs). ESP 574 is offered for candidates who currently are not teachers of record and yet have taught full-time for at least three of the past five years in P-12 classes that have included students with IEPs.. Track II is designed for candidates who have little or no full-time teaching experience in accredited schools. It requires the completion of a full-semester, capstone student teaching course, ESP 575 (12 credit hours), in an accredited school and in a classroom (P-12) that includes students with IEPs in the area of LBD. Candidates enrolled in ESP 575 may not be

3 employed in any position that could interfere with their full-time student teaching experience. **Applications must be received by July 1 for the fall semester; by November 15 for the spring semester; and by April 15 for the summer session.** To apply online, please see the links below: Graduate Application (Complete for US Citizen and Residents) *Note, please print application and mail when finished.

5 E. NON-DEGREE SEEKING CANDIDATES Candidates who want to take graduate special education courses for personal or professional development and who possess a bachelor s degree may, at the discretion of the Chair of the School of Education, be permitted to register for undergraduate or graduate-level course work as nondegree graduate candidates. Graduate work taken as a non-degree student carries full graduate credit, but does not necessarily apply toward a degree at Kentucky State University. No more than 6 hours of graduate-level coursework taken as a non-degree student may be applied toward a graduate degree or certificate. Non-degree graduate credit falls under the same ruling as transfer graduate credit from other institutions; thus, a limit of 6 semester hours including nondegree credits, may be applied toward fulfillment of degree requirements. A non-degree candidate has no guarantee that work completed in this category will be accepted, and if interested in becoming a degree candidate, the student should make certain that all necessary credentials, including test scores, are submitted as soon as possible. A listing of the Special Education classes and their descriptions is attached along with Curriculum Contracts I & II, Application for Admission to Practicum or Student Teaching, Cooperating Teacher/Principal Data and Agreement Form, Course Sequences and Scholarship information.
