Admission requirements for graduate-level teacher and educational leader programs
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 5, PART 1
§ 210-a. Admission requirements for graduate-level teacher and
educational leader programs. Each institution registered by the
department with graduate-level teacher and leader education programs
shall adopt rigorous selection criteria geared to predicting a
candidate's academic success in its program, including but not limited
to, achievement of a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher in
the candidate's undergraduate program. Each program may exempt up to
fifty percent of any incoming class of students from such selection
criteria set forth in this section based on a student's demonstration of
potential to positively contribute to the teaching profession or other
extenuating circumstances pursuant to the regulations of the
commissioner. A program shall report to the department the number of
students admitted pursuant to such exemption and the selection criteria
used for such exemptions.
