Revalidation Policy for Old Coursework

The division requires revalidation of certain Professional Education courses that are over 10 years old at the time of matriculation into the Division of Education or at the time of return to the Division after one year or more absence. Revalidation will occur when the course is part of the foundations courses in the division ( EDUC-H 340, EDUC-M 300, EDUC-P 280, EDUC-M 201,  EDUC-W 200, EDUC-K 206, EDUC-E 337, and EDUC-E 301)

The means of revalidation will be a test designed to revalidate credit in the specificcourse. Students must receive 75% or higher to pass. The test may be repeated once, but may be taken only once in a given semester. Students who wish to revalidate coursework must contact the Division chairperson at least one month prior to the first day of class.

The Division chairperson will make arrangements with the appropriate faculty to provide the student with the revalidation test.  Exams will be designed and graded by the appropriate faculty in the Division.

A form will be filled out and placed in the student's file. The form will include:

  • date of test
  • pass or fail
  • recommendation for revalidation
  • signatures of faculty assessing test and  Division chairperson

Students who are unsuccessful in passing the revalidation exam must enroll in the course to receive credit.

 All other Professional Education Courses must have been completed within the 10 year period prior to matriculation into the Division of Education or the 10 year period prior to return to the Division after one year or more absence.
