Box 6009, Morgantown, WV , Phone: (304) , Fax: (304) Acceptance Policy The University Graduate Council sets minimum standards for admission into graduate study. However, faculty members in each respective program area decide who should be admitted into graduate study under their supervision. Ultimately, it is them who certify which students have demonstrated sufficient mastery of the discipline to qualify for a graduate degree. Although a student may be admitted for the purpose of enrolling in advanced coursework, only the program faculty may grant permission for the pursuit of a degree. Likewise, a student will not be recommended for a degree until the faculties of that specific graduate program have indicated, in writing, that the student has gained satisfactory knowledge and has completed all the requirements for the graduate program. Applicants for an Ed. D. in Public School Administration must comply with the WVU requirements for admission to Graduate Studies, the requirements of the College of Human Resources and Education, and those that the EDLS program has specified. Admission to all programs is contingent on an assessment of complete official transcripts, including all higher education work attempted, and other evidence the faculty may deem necessary in order to judge students prospective success within the graduate program. If applicants meet the minimum requirements, they may be invited to an on-campus interview. Students will receive official notification of acceptance or rejection within one month of the interview. All students accepted into the program will receive information about their assigned advisor and guidance on the development of a personalized program of study. The Master of arts program is a blended program utilizing instructional technology to prepare students as dynamic leaders in educational institutions. The masters degree leads to principal certification K-12.
