Mild/Moderate Distance Degree



Successful completion of the program leads to the Bachelor of Science degree in Special Education. The degree requires a minimum of 120 semester credit hours.

Both applicants and accepted students are encouraged to work closely with the Program Advisor. Current program participants are required to meet with the Program Advisor each semester at their Regional Campus or Center during arranged meeting times. Clearance for course registration is based on meeting attendance.

A minimum GPA of 3.0 is required for admission and throughout the program. In addition, students are required to earn a "B-" or higher in all licensure and Special Education classes. Students who receive a grade below "B-" must retake the course.

Coursework Sequence

Students must complete all University Studies Requirements and Professional Education coursework prior to starting the Mild Moderate Specialization coursework. Although the program requires that students take several specific courses as part of their University Studies Requirements, successful completion of these courses does not guarantee admission into the program. It is critical to work with the Program Advisor to ensure that you are able to plan your program effectively.
