All students in the Curriculum and Instruction, Master of Education in Teaching, Educational Administration Building Level, and Educational Administration District Licensure programs are required to complete a comprehensive exam during one of their last two semesters of study.
The exam is designed to allow students to demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of content from their course work and the ability to exercise critical thinking skills in order to address contemporary issues and challenges within the profession.
The Comps are delivered as a Canvas course and are offered each semester. Students will have unlimited access to the exam during the entire period it is open.

Intent to Graduate
You did it ( ...or almost did ...or want to know what you need to know to complete it)! All students must submit completed "intent to graduate" forms by the deadline posted for the semester that you anticipate graduating. Deadlines are as follows:
- March 1 for Summer graduates
- July 1 for Fall graduates
- November 1 for Spring graduates
Failure to give notice of intent to graduate can cause a delay in the awarding of your degree. If you are completing a non-degree program, you do not need to complete an intent to graduate. You must be enrolled in at least one credit hour during the semester you plan to graduate.
