Degree Requirements

The curriculum of an Ed.S. program is a set of academic courses identified by the university as suitable for properly qualified students. The curriculum may include both specific courses and a selection of elective courses.

Credit Requirements

At least two thirds (2/3) of the total credit requirement must be earned at Boise State after admission to the graduate program. All credit must be approved for application by the graduate program. All credit applied to meet the total credit requirement for an Ed.S. degree must be graduate academic credit except that a limited number of credits earned in undergraduate courses outside the major are allowed.

Culminating Activity

A culminating activity may not be required for an Ed.S. program but is not precluded from being a requirement. If a culminating activity is required, it must be represented in the total credit requirements using an appropriate course.

Duration of Graduate Study

All requirements for an Ed.S. (including transfer courses) must be started and completed within a single continuous interval of no more than seven (7) years, although a graduate program may require a shorter interval of study for specific types of course. This single continuous interval includes summers and any semesters in which the student is not enrolled. In addition, it must encompass all courses applied to the degree, including transfer courses. For the Ed.S. in the Educational Technology program, any transfer credits must have been taken with five (5) calendar years of the time of admission to the program, as well as meet other Graduate College requirements.
