Application for Degree Candidacy is a written agreement outlining the courses necessary to receive a degree. All students must complete an Application for Degree Candidacy, approved by the student’s principal advisor, and submit it to International Graduate Programs for Educators before the completion of 12 credit hours. The application lists the courses that the student will be taking to fulfill their requirements for their Master's degree. It also lists the courses the student is looking to transfer into the program. The Application for Degree Candidacy will be sent to students at the time of acceptance into the program. Students will be notified by email when their Application for Degree Candidacy has been approved. Failure to develop an approved program and be admitted to degree candidacy between the completion of 6-12 graduate-level credit hours, will restrict further registration and/or graduation.
IMPORTANT! It is a student’s responsibility to list the correct SUNY Buffalo State course numbers and titles on the Application for Degree Candidacy.
