School of Education Academic Policies and Procedures
Degree Requirements & Graduation
Program requirements vary according to the requirements of specific programs. Students must achieve a GPA of at least 3.0 in courses.
Candidates should consult their Degreeworks account and program coordinator/adviser about their program’s exit requirements at least one year in advance of the expected date of graduation.
Graduation is the official completion of your program and conferral of an academic degree. In order to graduate, students must apply for graduation using CUNYFirst the semester before their planned graduation and complete any outstanding requirements by the stated deadlines. For more information on the graduation process, please visit the School of Education's Graduation and Commencement page education.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/graduation-commencement.
Undergraduate students who would like to use coursework taken at another institution towards their education major should complete the Course Equivalency form, have it reviewed by their Faculty Advisor and then submit to the School of Education Office of Academic and Student Affairs. For more information on the graduation process, please visit the School of Education's Register for Classes page at education.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/register-for-classes.
Registration Support & Appeals
For support with general registration issues and troubleshooting, please visit the School of Education's Register for Classes page at education.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/register-for-classes.
Adding a Course After the Registration Appeal Period Has Ended
Students seeking to resolve registration issues after the registration appeal period has ended may submit the School of Education Dean’s Request form. Please note, a request requires extenuating circumstances. Students are not approved if two or more classes have been missed.
Appealing a Registration Issue
Students seeking to appeal a registration issue after the deadlines for the semester may do so via the Dean’s Request form. All appeals require extenuating circumstances. The review adheres to the colleges published deadlines for add/drop and refunds. Students are only permitted one request during the time in their program. The School of Education Dean's Request form can be accessed on the School of Education's Appeals page at education.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/appeals-and-special-circumstances.
The School of Education adheres to the Hunter College Grade Appeals Procedures as outlined in this catalog. The School of Education Grade Appeal form can be accessed on the School of Education's Appeals page at education.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/appeals-and-special-circumstances.
The New York State Education Department (NYSED) does not permit any courses with a grade below C to be used toward the obtainment of teacher certification. Being that Hunter College's pass grade includes grades A - D, all courses included in a course of study for an education program, including courses in the Arts & Sciences, can not be taken pass/fail.
Students wishing to withdraw from their program must contact their School of Education faculty advisor, drop all courses in CUNYfirst (if currently enrolled) and complete the program withdrawal form found the School of Education's Appeals page at education.hunter.cuny.edu/academics/appeals-and-special-circumstances.
