Candidates enrolled in Department of Education graduate-level degree programs may apply to take their comprehensive examination during the Fall, Spring, or Summer I terms. This does not apply to candidates seeking certification only. Candidates must be enrolled in their last semester of coursework—or must have completed their coursework—prior to applying for the comprehensive examination. Once a candidate is eligible to take the comprehensive examination, an application form must be filed in accordance with university timelines.
The university advisers for guidance on the processes below are Dr. Nix for principal certification and Dr. Bigham for superintendent certification. Their email addresses are firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The next Master's Comprehensive Exam is scheduled for November 13 from 1:00 to 5:00 in HELC 9.
