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 re-take the GRE until they receive a passing score (4.0). Students must complete this requirement before applying for the Qualifying Examination.
