Important Notice Regarding Changes in Graduate Programs for Teachers
Current students and applicants interested in all Rank II (master's and fifth year) programs for Kentucky teachers should note that the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board has mandated the following:
Candidates already admitted to master's in Elementary P-5, master's in Elementary 5-9, master's in Reading/Writing, master's in Secondary 8-12, master's in Special Education fifth year in Elementary P-5, fifth year in elementary 5-9, or fifth year Secondary must complete the program by the end of the Fall 2012 semester. Students who do not complete by the deadline will be required to transfer into one of the new programs. Because of the extensive revisions required in the new programs, there is no guarantee that all courses taken in the old program will apply to the new programs.
Note: this time limit supersedes the university regulation that provides 10 years in which to complete a program.
Check with the Dean of the College of Education at (606) 783-2040 or the Department of Foundational and Graduate Studies at (606) 783-2261 for current information on the status of these program changes.
