Resources for M.S. in Education students:
Candidates must maintain a 3.0 Grade Point Average
Candidates who fall below a 3.0, at the conclusion of their foundations coursework, or subsequent semesters, must appeal dismissal. The written appeal statement must include a fully developed improvement plan. Appeals will be assessed by the Graduate Admissions and Retention Committee and are subject to its decision regarding whether a candidate may be readmitted and the required components of the improvement plan.
Candidates must demonstrate consistent progress toward the degree
Candidates not enrolled in coursework in three consecutive academic years must apply for readmission. Readmitted candidates will be subject to degree requirements at the time of readmission. Candidates who have not completed the degree within ten years of admission may be dismissed or required to take additional courses to update professional content and skills. This assessment will be made by the Graduate Admissions and Retention Committee.
Culminating Research Project Policy Change: Effective Fall 2014
For students enrolled in their culminating research project, it is required that continuous enrollment be maintained for each semester they are working on their project. For every additional semester that a student is engaged in culminating research beyond the initial enrollment in E590, they must enroll in a one hour independent study section entitled “Culminating Research Inquiry”. This does not apply to the original semester of enrollment in E590. Should a student not meet these enrollment and retention requirements on a semester-by-semester basis, they must enroll in an additional 3-hour section of the culminating research project.
Candidates whose personal conduct or dispositions are contrary to the expectations of the university and the profession may be dismissed.
Students who fail to meet the expectations of the university and the profession may be dismissed. The School of Education policy regarding documentation and dismissal applies to graduate candidates. Such cases will be presented to the Graduate Admissions and Retention Committee. Conduct which violates Student Code of Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct will be referred to the appropriate university authority.
Graduate candidates with 6 credits of incomplete coursework will not be permitted to enroll in further courses until they have completed requirements for the existing incomplete coursework.
Dismissal is subject to all appeals processes
Enacted by the School of Education and Indiana University East, in compliance with Student Code of Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct.
In order to complete their program and graduate, students must meet the following requirements:
- Completion of all required coursework including, but not limited to, Action Research Project and Culminating Research Project.

Should a candidate fail to meet Admission, Retention or Graduation requirements he/she will have one opportunity to remediate the deficiency. No more than one deficiency may be remediated per program component, total of three. Candidates must appeal dismissal in writing to the Graduate Admissions and Retention Committee (GARC), within thirty days of notification. The letter of appeal must include a full explanation of why the candidate has been deficient and a concise improvement plan outlining how the candidate will take responsibility for remediation of the deficiency and be more successful upon readmission.
The GARC has authority to approve or deny an appeal and approve, deny, modify an improvement plan. Appeals to GARC decisions may be made to the Dean of Education. Appeals to decisions rendered by the Dean are processed through the IUE Admissions and Academic Affairs Committee (AAA). Appeals of AAA decisions may be made to the Chancellor.
