3 Overview and Sequence of the Ed.D. Process 1 Before Coursework: 1. Initial Advising: An advisor is assigned to each student at the start of his/her program to help the student plan his/her studies and to provide academic guidance. This initial advisor may or may not become the dissertation advisor. Each student should consult the acceptance letter for the name of the assigned advisor and contact the advisor at the beginning of the semester in which the student was admitted to schedule a meeting to discuss the student s scholarly aims and interests, learn program requirements, and complete a plan of work. The student may change advisors or members of the doctoral committee following the successful completion of the Qualifying Examination (written and oral has been passed) unless there is a reason (e.g. a member of the committee is no longer at WSU). If a change of advisor or committee member is desired, the student should discuss the change with the current advisor and identify another graduate faculty to be the new advisor or member of the committee. The student should acquire the signature of the current major advisor as well as the new major advisor or committee member and submit the Change form to the Graduate Education Office (Room 489). The form used to Change Major Advisor is found at: The form used to Change Committee Member is found at: 2. Transfer of Credits: A maximum of 32 semester hours of graduate credit earned prior to admission as a doctoral applicant may be accepted, at the discretion of the major advisor, without regard to when courses were taken. Only grades of "B" or better (3.0 on a 4.0 point grade scale) are acceptable for transfer. Grades of "B-" are considered less than "B" and are not acceptable. Grades of P or S are not transferable. The decision of whether or not a previously taken course should be used toward the student s doctoral program is made at the discretion of the student s major advisor. The Ed.D. Transfer of Credit form can be found at: 1 Information in this Handbook is subject to change. 2
4 During Coursework: 3. Course and Credit Requirements: A minimum of ninety (90) graduate credits beyond the baccalaureate degree are required for the Ed.D. program: 70 credits in coursework and 20 credits in dissertation research. A list of required courses can be found at the end of this document. Minimum Required Semester Hours Major Field (Concentration) 30 minimum Doctoral Seminars 6 minimum Research Techniques 11 minimum Dissertation Research 20 Electives (as needed) 11 minimum Minor Field/Cognate (Optional) 12 minimum (if chosen) Total Minimum Semester Hours 90 Cognate: Beginning Fall 2014, the cognate is an optional component of the student s program. Some students will find that a cognate strengthens their program. In addition, having a cognate outside of the student s concentration area may provide Ed.D. students with the necessary outside member of the dissertation committee. The student should determine, in consultation with the major advisor, if the cognate is warranted. If chosen, the cognate consists of a minimum of twelve (12) semester hours and is included within the 90 minimum semester hours. If no minor field/cognate is chosen, the student in consultation with the advisor, will select additional coursework to meet the minimum 90 semester hours. 4. Residency Requirements: Residency refers to courses taken in residence at Wayne State University. The requirements are as follows: At least thirty (30) semester hours beyond the Master s degree must be taken in residence at Wayne State University. Dissertation credits may not be used to fulfill the 30 semester hour residency requirement. At least six (6) semester hours of regular graduate coursework must be completed in each of two successive semesters anytime after official admission to the program. Dissertation credits are not considered regular graduate coursework. Successive semesters include: Fall and winter, winter and spring/summer, winter and fall, spring/summer and fall. A minimum of thirty (30) semester hours, exclusive of dissertation credit, must be elected in coursework open only to graduate students (7000 course level or above). 3
5 Full Time Graduate Status: Full-time status requires eight or more credits hours per semester in fall and winter semesters. In the spring/summer, full-time status requires two or more credit hours. 5. Plan of Work: The Plan of Work is completed by the student and advisor and lists courses (taken as well as to be taken) in the program. The major advisor and the College Graduate Officer must approve the plan of work no later than the semester in which the student is completing the first 18 semester hours of coursework under advisement. The Plan of Work must conform to the Policy and Procedures of the College of Education with at least 30 semester hours of regular graduate coursework in Education. The total semester hours may not exceed 122. The plan must be submitted to the Graduate Education Office (Room 489) for approval. An approved Plan of Work is a requirement for Ed.D. Candidacy. The Ed.D. Plan of Work can be found at: Changes in Plan of Work: The courses in the approved Plan of Work may be changed by the student in consultation with the advisor. To make changes in the courses listed in the approved Plan of Work, the student should set up a meeting with his/her advisor to fill out a Change in Plan of Work Form. Change of Plan of Work Form can be found here: 6. Course Repeat Policy: Students may repeat only courses in which they received a grade of B- or below. The original grade for the course will remain on the student s transcript, but only the second iteration of the grade will be used in calculating the student s Grade Point Average. Students will not receive University financial aid for repetition of courses. A "Request to Repeat a Graduate Course" form must be completed and filed before registration for the repeated course. The original grade for the course will remain on the student s transcript, but only the grade received in repetition of the course will be used in computing the student s grade point average. This form is available online: 7. Annual Progress Report: Every Ed.D. student/candidate must submit an Annual Progress Report each academic year. One of the purposes of the Annual Progress Report is to encourage conversations between the major advisor and the student regarding professional development, career pathways, and employment opportunities. The progress report outlines the student s scholarly progress during the academic year and lists goals for the following year. The Annual Progress Report must be completed by the student and advisor by April 30 th of every year. 4
6 Progress Report Form available at: 8. Formatting Guidelines for Writing: In TED, all scholarly writing is to be completed in the formatting style of the American Psychological Association (APA). It is recommended that the student purchase or obtain the Publication Manual of the APA and/or review formatting guidelines online at 9. Qualifying Examination: The Qualifying Examination is an opportunity for doctoral students to demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of their field, specialized knowledge in their area of research, and skill in constructing an argument and analyzing and synthesizing ideas in the field. All Ed.D. students are required to pass the Qualifying Examination near the end of their coursework. Successful completion of the Qualifying Examination is a requirement for Ed.D. Candidacy. The format of the Qualifying Examination is chosen in consultation with the advisor and will contain written and oral components. Toward the end of the student s coursework, the major advisor and the student should choose a preferred semester in which to complete the Qualifying Examination and work together to develop a plan to prepare for the examination. The Qualifying Examination Committee: must consist minimally of three graduate faculty members from the major department (College of Education), at least two of whom hold a Regular Graduate Faculty Appointment valid through the completion of the Qualifying Examination period. The major advisor must be one of the two members with a valid Regular Graduate Faculty Appointment. The Qualifying Examination Committee must have these members: The major advisor will serve as the chairperson of the Qualifying Examination committee and as the Graduate Examiner. The committee should have two additional members of the graduate faculty either from the major program area in the College of Education or one from the major program area and one from the cognate area (if chosen). The membership of the Qualifying Examination Committee may not normally be changed until the Final Qualifying Examination has been passed. The major advisor will convey to the student the results of the Qualifying Examination. A list of faculty with Graduate Faculty Appointments can be found here: Written Examination: Effective Fall 2014, the Written Doctoral Qualifying Examination in the College of Education consists of four 3-hour writing sessions 5
7 totaling 12 hours. Students complete either 12 hours in the major field or 9 hours in the major field and 3 hours in the cognate. Students who successfully complete the written Qualifying Examination are required to take an Oral Qualifying Examination (see below). If the written component of the Qualifying Examination is not completed successfully, the student can repeat it only once. The major advisor will convey to the student the Examination Committee's specific recommendations concerning a second examination and any additional work to be completed prior to a second examination. A second examination may not be held until at least one term has elapsed, but must be held within one calendar year following the first examination. The result of the second examination shall be considered final. Students who fail the Written Examination in the Fall semester have only one option: to retest in the next Fall semester. Students who fail the Written Examination in the Winter semester have two options: 1) to retest in the upcoming Fall Semester, or 2) to retest in the next Winter semester. Oral Examination: The Oral Examination covers both the student s area of concentration and the cognate (if the student has a cognate). The Oral Examination occurs after the Written Examination and is required of all Ed.D. students who successfully complete the Written Qualifying Examination in the College of Education. The content of the Oral Examination can be similar to or different from the Written Examination. If a student's response to a section of the Written Examination is weak, the Oral Examination offers a further opportunity to demonstrate knowledge. If there are no weak areas, the Committee can use the Oral Examination as an opportunity to delve further into the student's understanding of the field and/or explore the student s plans related to the dissertation research. If the student does not successfully complete the Written Qualifying Examination, there will be no Oral Examination. Check the following link to access important information, including policies and procedures, regarding the qualifying examinations as well as the form to be filled out at the beginning of the semester in which you plan to take the qualifying exams: After Coursework: 10. Doctoral Candidacy is attained after an Ed.D. candidate has completed all the academic requirements of the Ed.D. except the dissertation. An Ed.D. student will be advanced to the rank of Ed.D. candidate upon the recommendation of the program area and the College of Education Graduate Officer and completion of the following 6
8 requirements: a. Approval of the Plan of Work b. Completion of all coursework as listed in the Plan of Work c. Satisfactory completion of the Final Qualifying Examination d.

Registration of additional dissertation credits is prohibited until the prospectus is approved. During the time the candidate is enrolled in the dissertation course credits, the candidate is expected to work toward completion of the dissertation, beginning with the prospectus/ proposal. Although the student is not taking traditional courses during this time, the student should be in continuous contact with her/his major advisor in order to make satisfactory progress and complete the dissertation within the time limits. Maintenance Credits: If a student completes all 20 Dissertation credits (ED9989) but has not completed all the dissertation requirements, the student should register in Candidate Maintenance Status (ED 9995) each semester until completion of the program. The Candidate Maintenance fee is equivalent to the Registration Fee plus the Omnibus Fee for one graduate credit. The student must contact the Graduate Officer in the College of Education for permission to register in this course. Maintenance Status 8
10 allows students access to University resources libraries, computer systems, laboratories and faculty advising. The Candidate Maintenance fee is equal to the registration fee plus the omnibus fee for one credit hour.
