Admission Writing Requirement


Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership at Fresno State (DPELFS)

Policy on Graduate Entrance Writing Requirement


Applicants to the Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership must meet a Graduate-level entrance writing requirement.  The DPELFS Faculty Graduate Group voted to adopt a minimum score of 4.0 on the GRE Writing portion of the examination.  If a student is offered admission and does not meet this criteria, s/he will be offered a “conditional admittance” with a requirement that they must attend the Graduate Writing Studio and pass a writing exam administered prior to the completion of their first year in the program.  The writing exam and scoring rubric will be developed and scored by a subcommittee of the DPELFS Faculty Graduate Group.
