Prerequisite Course

PSY 255 Abnormal Psychology or equivalent

International Students

Though international students can attend many UNC Extended Campus programs, this delivery of this program is not well-suited for international students due to U.S. immigration requirements concerning the ratio of credit hours that international students must take in the classroom setting compared to how many credits are taken in online courses (immigration counts partially online courses as online).

Transferring Credit

Applicable graduate credit with a grade of A or B from an accredited university may be able to be applied towards this academic program. Educational Specialist degree students must complete a minimum number of credits at the University of Northern Colorado: 48 hours if taking this degree as a post-bachelor's program; 24 hours if you have earned a master's degree previously. Students are encouraged to check school policies regarding transfer of credit. See the complete Specialist Degree Requirements.

All work counted in a degree program must be within six years for a specialist degree. The time limit is calculated from the beginning of the first class transferred in and counted in the degree program. Students must submit an original transcript to their advisor for review. Student and advisor then complete a Transfer of Credit form to submit along with the original transcript to the Grad School for review and final approval.
