7 Page 7 Welcome from the Program Chair EDAD Program Mission, Model, Overview, and Objectives Program Overview Table of Contents The shared vision of the School of Education is that of Learning and Leading through Reflective Practice. The School of Education prepares educators and other professionals as life-long learners and leaders who practice is guided by systematic reflection of a myriad of factors influencing educational issues. The learning methods and requirements for this course are designed to challenge you to critically reflect on the major principles in American higher education in order for you to develop your own informed perspective on what principles should be used in postsecondary education. The readings and other course requirements will also assist you in developing a foundation in higher education and prepare you to be a reflective educator. We believe that reflective leaders are skilled educators whose practices and decisions draw upon the best available theory, research, and experiential wisdom. Reflective decision making engages administrators in cycles of thought and action based upon theoretical, ethical, and professional knowledge. The Division of Educational Administration is committed to preparing reflective leaders. The Division of Educational Administration at The U is recognized as providing graduate programs of distinction and is considered one of the most outstanding in the Midwest. In addition to public school executive leadership programs at the principal and superintendent levels, specialization is also offered in adult and higher education. Although each program, including adult and higher education, involves specialization coursework, a common core of knowledge about leadership and administration is required of all students. Graduates from our doctoral programs are employed in every higher education institution in South Dakota. We estimate that half of all graduate degrees in education in South Dakota are awarded from USD. We offer: M.A., Ed.S., Ed.D. degrees in: Elementary Principal Secondary Principal PK-12 Principal School District Superintendent Director of Curriculum Director of Special Education (Ed.S. & Ed.D. only) Adult and Higher Education (M.A. and Ed.D. only) Online EDAD Degrees The Division of Educational Administration offers a host of online graduate programs designed to prepare individuals for administrative and leadership positions in the K-12 and adult and higher educational settings. We offer master's and educational specialist programs for school district superintendents, elementary and secondary school principals, special education directors, curriculum directors, adult educators, and higher education administrators and classroom instructors. Program course availability and rotations as well as sample schedules are presented beginning on p. 8,

37 Page 37 Student Responsibilities Comprehensive Exam The comprehensive exam format is designed to provide students with an opportunity to engage in research, to critically reflect on your doctoral coursework, and to demonstrate your comprehensive knowledge of Educational Administration as well as your written communication skills. You will be expected to critically analyze the issues in the questions and support your responses with references from the literature and your coursework. You are to synthesize the knowledge from course readings, class discussion, and the current literature as completely and succinctly as possible in responding to the questions. Students may use their textbooks, notes, course papers, and other resources as long as they are cited properly. The advisor will write the exam questions and then send them to you via . Masters students get one day to answer three questions; specialists students get two days to answer four questions; and doctoral students will have three days to complete five questions. Academic honesty As stated in the Student Code of Conduct, the integrity of the University community is contingent upon fulfillment of a trust that the members of the student body will engage in reasonable behaviors to promote and protect the educational environment. Plagiarism is defined as (but not limited to) the following: The use of paraphrase or direct quotation of published or unpublished work of another person without full and clear acknowledgment The unacknowledged use of materials prepared by another person or agency engaged in the selling of term papers or other academic materials. No credit can be given for a dishonest assignment. At the discretion of the instructor, a student caught engaging in any form of academic dishonesty may be: Given a zero for that assignment. Asked to rewrite and resubmit the assignment for credit. Assigned a reduced grade for the course. Dropped from the course. Failed in the course. Incompletes A grade of I may only remain incomplete for one calendar year, at which time it converts to a grade of NCI and the course must be repeated (and repaid) for credit. Student Responsibilities/Continued Next Page

38 Page 38 Student Responsibilities/continued from p. 37 Freedom in Learning Students are responsible for learning the content of any course of study in which they are enrolled. Under the Board of Regents and University policy, student academic performance shall be evaluated solely on an academic basis and students should be free to take reasoned exception to the data or views offered in any course of study. Students who believe that an academic evaluation is unrelated to academic standards but is related instead to judgment of their personal opinion or conduct should contact the dean of the college which offers the class in order to initiate a review of the evaluation. (South Dakota Board of Regents Policy) Student s Rights to Assistance or Accommodations Any student who feels s/he may need academic accommodations or access accommodations based on the impact of a documented disability should contact and register with Disability Services during the first week of class. Disability Services is the official office to assist students through the process of disability verification and coordination of appropriate and reasonable accommodations. Students currently registered with Disability Services must obtain a new accommodation memo each semester. Ernetta L. Fox, Director, Disability Services, Service Room 119 Service Center (605) Federal Law prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of `973 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act). The University has designated Ms. Roberta Ambur, Vice President of Administration & ITS, as the Coordinator to monitor compliance with these statutes. Section 504 obligates USD and Ms. Ambur to provide equal access for all persons with disabilities. Ms. Ambur can be reached at Room 209, Slagle Hall, Phone: Residence Requirements Residence refers to fulltime registration in graduate studies. Ed.D. students must generally complete a minimum of two academic years of residence or full-time graduate study in select programs. Executive programs and off-campus programs designed for working adults are exempt. Divisional requirements concerning residency may vary for Master s students. To ensure residency requirements are met, graduate students should check with the Division of Educational Administration. Transfer Credit A maximum of nine graduate credit hours from other regionally accredited institutions may be transferred toward a Master s degree program. These transfer credits must have been completed no more than seven years prior to conferment of the USD graduate degree. The transfer credit approval form must be signed by the student s advisor, department chairperson, and approved by the Graduate Dean. More than nine credits may be transferred toward Educational Specialist and doctoral degrees. Check with the academic department for information on the number of credits that may be approved for transfer and the time limits on these credits. Typically, no more than 30 credit hours from a Master s degree may be transferred to an Education Specialist or doctoral program. An official transcript must be sent directly to the Graduate School to verify all requests for approval of transfer credit, unless such transcript is on file with The Graduate School. Requests for approval of transfer credit should be made during the first semester of study in or- Transfer Credit/Continued Next Page

39 Page 39 Transfer Credit/continued from p The student must have been in good standing in the institution from where the credit is transferred. 2. The grades in courses transferred are B or better; N, P, S or similar designations are acceptable for up to three credit hours with approval. (Note, only three credit hours of N, P, or S may be on the program of study, whether these are from transferred or USD courses). 3. The institution is accredited by a recognized, regional accrediting body. Transfer credit from another institution will be recorded on a USD transcript only if the transfer work is accepted as part of a USD graduate degree. Time Limit and Validation of Credits The entire work for the Master s, Specialist in Education, and Doctorate in Education must be completed within a period of seven calendar years from the date of the first registration regardless of enrollment. For the Ed.D., all requirements must be completed within five calendar years following the date of admission to Ed.D. candidacy. By special permission of the Graduate Dean, the time may be extended. Graduate credits earned more than seven years prior to the date of intended graduation must be validated. The method of validation is to be decided upon by the student s advisory committee and sent to the Graduate Dean for final approval. Normally, validation may include repeating of the course, satisfactorily completing a final examination for the course, demonstration of relevant professional experience, or specific additional questions on the comprehensive examination. Course Numbering System Course numbers are coded by a prefix to indicate disciplines or significant sub-discipline, and a three-digit number. The 500 series indicates beginning level graduate courses. Where appropriate, graduate lectures may be given in conjunction with an undergraduate course of the same title. In all such cases, it is the instructor s responsibility to maintain a documented difference in the quality and depth of work appropriate to graduate education. No USD course work numbered 400 or below may be used on a program of study to fulfill graduate degree requirements. The 700 series is clearly and solely graduate material at Master s or Specialist level. The 800 series indicates Doctoral levels of study. Adding and Dropping Courses Students may use WebAdvisor to drop and/or add courses after initial registration until the end of the Drop/Add period if they are not completely withdrawing from all courses. After the Drop/Add period, which is also the 100% refund deadline and is typically the first week to ten days of the semester, the student must obtain a Drop/Add form or withdrawal form from the Registrar s Office located in the Belbas Center or online in the Registrar s section of myu. portal. The Add/Drop or Withdrawal form must be properly completed and signed by the student s advisor and the Graduate Dean. The deadline and procedures for adding and dropping classes are available on the Registrar s section of the myu. portal. NOTE: Instructors can drop a student who is not showing satisfactory progression from the course. Student ResponsibilitiesContinued Next Page
