Description

  • Sign-in Required
  • For all roles

Request for Revalidation of Coursework Normally, a course may not be counted toward degree requirements if it has been completed more than: a. Five years prior to the awarding of the degree for master's students or, b. Six year prior to awarding of the degree for dual master’s students or, c. Seven years prior to passing the qualifying exam for PhD students or, d. Eight years prior to passing the qualifying exam for PhD double major students However, the graduate advisor, in consultation with the advisory committee, may recommend to the University Graduate School that coursework taken prior to the above deadlines be revalidated if it can be demonstrated that the knowledge contained in the course(s) remains current. Currency of knowledge may be demonstrated by such things as: a. Passing an exam specifically on the material covered by the course. The department/school should provide documentation that the student successfully passed the exam and in what format the exam occurred (oral or written). b. Passing a more advanced course in the same subject area. The department/student should provide the course #, course title, year taken, credit hours successfully completed, and grade earned. If the course was not taken at IU, also include the transcript from the school at which the course was taken. c. Passing a comprehensive exam in which the student demonstrates substantial knowledge of the content of the course. The department/school should provide documentation that the student successfully passed the exam and in what format the exam occurred (oral or written). d. Passing qualifying examinations in which the student demonstrates substantial knowledge of the content of the course. A maximum of only two courses may be revalidated with the qualifying exam process. e. Teaching a comparable course. A current copy of the student’s CV/resume, showing the teaching experience, should be submitted with the revalidation request. f. Publishing scholarly research demonstrating substantial knowledge of the content and fundamental principles of the course. A current copy of the student’s CV/resume, showing the teaching experience, should be submitted with the revalidation request. Each course for which consideration for revalidation is being requested should be justified separately.
