- Successful completion of a bachelor’s degree with a transcript documenting 3.0 or higher GPA in a Bachelors degree from an accredited institution

- A resume/vita

An applicant who does not meet criteria for admission can be considered for provisional/probational admission. Provisional admission will constitute that applicants may be accepted on a provisional admission, potentially requiring candidates to take additional coursework/leveling courses as a prerequisite to the listed graduate certificate courses. Candidates admitted on a provisional basis will be reviewed for full admission pending completion of prerequisite coursework, earning a minimum of a “B” grade in all prerequisite coursework. Candidates admitted on a probational basis will be reviewed for full admission pending completion of initial graduate certificate coursework with an average 3.0 GPA.
Students may transfer up to 3 credit hours of graduate level special education coursework to the graduate certificate from an accredited college/university (if taken within 3 years prior to 18-hour graduate certificate application). The courses must have been completed with a letter grade of a “B” or better. All transfer credits must be approved by the student’s advisor and/or special education program coordinator.
Retention in the program requires students to maintain the Graduate College’s requirement of a GPA of 3.0 to maintain good standing (see http://gradcollege.okstate.edu/current_student/academic_progress.html).
Completion of the Graduate Certificate in Special Education requires completion of the coursework in good standing (GPA of B, or 3.0).
