SECTION 210-A
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, a minimum score on the graduate record examination or a
substantially equivalent admission examination, as determined by the
institution, and achievement of a cumulative grade point average of 3.0
or higher in the candidate's undergraduate program; provided, however,
such graduate record examination or substantially equivalent admission
examination requirement shall in no case apply to certified teachers or
school administrators who already hold a graduate degree. Each program
may exempt no more than fifteen 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.
