Policy on Matriculation into QUEST Program

Students in the QUEST program who have earned 60 college credits must be formally matriculated into the QUEST program by passing the appropriate Praxis II examination and have an appropriate GPA. Without a passing score on the Praxis II examination, students will not be allowed to take more than 15 graduate credits in the School of Education. These 15 credits are the graduate courses required to complete the BA/BS degree. No student will be permitted to take additional graduate courses above the 15 credits without passing the appropriate PRAXIS II examination as an undergraduate student.
