*Electives should be designed to develop the student’s knowledge and skills in a way that directly supports the Gifted Education Program by enhancing his/her ability to teach gifted and talented students. Some courses in other areas of special education (especially specific learning disabilities or academic content area instruction) may be especially helpful, as will courses in curriculum and instruction, child development, or instructional technologies. All electives must have earned graduate degree credit from a regionally accredited institution and must be approved in advance in writing by the faculty advisor. Courses that earned continuing education or professional development credits may not be counted as electives in a degree program.
All courses in a degree program must be completed within 8 years; this includes transfers from other institutions and elective courses.

Students who fail to maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 will be dismissed from the program and may be unable to reapply for admission.
