Admissions policies concerning entering with prior graduate work, and the expected implications for time to completion:

Incoming Students:
Students may transfer up to 12 credits of graduate work. Due to the program’s scheduling of courses, having credits waived rarely decreases the time to completion for a student transferring 1-12 credits of graduate work. The expected time to completion for these students remains 6 years.

Advanced standing students come into the program with 15 or more credits. The time-limit for advanced standing students will be determined at the start of a student’s time in the program and based on the following considerations:

  • Number of graduate credits transferring versus the LIU Post 115-credit program
  • Number of required clinical experience training years
  • Completed research coursework and/or project
  • Completed coursework/project transferrable for CCE project
  • Scheduling issues due to program scheduling and/or faculty availability

Students will sign an agreement regarding their academic plan and time limits at the start of their program. The same methods for extensions for an additional 1 or 2 years will be used as mentioned in the “Seventh Year Extension” and Eighth Year Extension” Policies.
