Residency & Liaisons

Residency

Students will normally spend four semesters in residence at the Law School and as many additional semesters in residence as needed to complete the additional requirements for the pertinent EDLDR degree. Ph.D. candidates must arrange the sequence of semesters to ensure that they are in residence as full-time students in the EDLDR program for at least two consecutive semesters (Fall-Spring or Spring-Fall) excluding summer in a single twelve-month period. D.Ed. candidates must take at least 90 credits, of which at least 30 credits must be earned at the University Park campus.

Candidates for the D.Ed. degree are required to spend at least one semester and one summer session consecutively in full-time residence during a twelve-month period. D.Ed. candidates may satisfy the residence requirement in another manner consistent with Graduate School policy, including attendance at the day-long seminars offered weekly every other academic year.
