Persons who may be eligible to matriculate in any graduate program include those who:
An interview is not required, but is strongly recommended.Holders of F- or J-class visas are not eligible for admission into the following programs: Churchill School, Teacher Leader at the Edith Winthrop Teacher Center, or Education Leadership programs at the White Plains Staff Development Center.
Once students have passed the required entry-level coursework or its equivalent, including the NYS LAST exam and the Manhattanville Writing Assessment (see Policies, Procedures & Examinations section), they enter intermediate level courses. These courses serve as foundations for capstone courses, which include seminars, practica and/or student teaching experiences.
All students matriculated into degree or Advanced Certification programs must take the NYS TEST OF WRITING SKILLS during their first 6 credits. Students who do not achieve a satisfactory score on the test will be required to complete the Graduate Education Writing Tutorial and may continue in the graduate program on a probationary basis. Students who fail twice will not be permitted to take further Education courses until they pass the exam.
Candidates have up to five years from the date of matriculation to complete their programs. A time extension, typically of two years, may be granted at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Graduate Advising. In such cases, additional courses may be required to update the student's program, as determined by the relevant department of the School of Education.
Student or supervised teaching is a culminating experience, only undertaken when essentially all coursework and other requirements have been completed
Nine (9) credits is considered full time attendance. A student enrolled for six (6) credits for student teaching is also considered full-time.
Specific coursework required for teacher certification is described in each program plan. This coursework must be essentially completed by the end of the semester prior to student teaching. No more than two such courses may be outstanding.
In certain certification areas, Manhattanville may have more rigorous course requirements for the content core than New York State. For details on Social Studies, Mathematics, Sciences, English and Foreign Language requirements at Manhattanville, see the relevant program plans in this catalog. In certain cases, these courses may be completed as part of the graduate program. Courses other than those specified may also be required by the Chairperson of the Art Department and/or the Director of Music, on the basis of the required portfolio review or audition.
Manhattanville College requires a course in Child or Adolescent Developmental Psychology as appropriate, for graduation and for certification. This requirement must be satisfied prior to or during the first 18 credits of the student’s program. Students will not be allowed to student teach if they have not met this requirement. SSE 2025 or EDU 5344 will satisfy the requirement, but cannot be used as an elective in ANY degree or program leading to certification.
Matriculated masters and advanced certification program students may transfer up to six graduate credits toward their degree from a fully and regionally accredited college, provided that the coursework was taken within the last five years, is determined by the faculty to be appropriate for their program, and a grade of B or better was received. Additional credits from selected institutions will be considered in very limited instances at the discretion of the college.
Candidates must file a written request to have course credits approved for transfer. If possible, approval for coursework to be transferred should be received from Graduate Advising before the course is taken. It is the student’s responsibility to verify that the coursework will earn official graduate-level credits from a regionally accredited institution and a letter grade. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the School of Education receives an official copy of the transcript for a transfer course promptly upon completion of the course. If transcripts are received later than 10 business days before the student’s graduation, that student’s graduation will be postponed until the following semester.
Credit for student teaching cannot be transferred from another institution.
Transfer credits must be approved by the Office of Graduate Advising of the School of Education.
The College provides, insofar as is consistent with New York State certification requirements, flexible and individualized programs, academic guidance and planning, and carefully selected placements for student teaching. Advisement is critical for a successful experience; therefore, the School of Education requires all students to meet with an advisor on a regular basis. Students are also responsible for meeting all relevant deadlines.
Advising and Registration
All graduate registrations must be approved by a full-time faculty member or a member of the Graduate Advising Office, by signature or electronically. Registration for student teaching courses must also be approved by a member of the Office of Field Placement by signature. Upon matriculation, each student will be assigned an appropriate faculty advisor and informed of that assignment in November and March. Students are advised to register in a timely fashion for those courses they know they must take in a given semester. Graduate Education courses are closed with 25 students; however, some Liberal Arts and some Education courses, including some methods courses, practica, seminars, and technology courses, are capped with fewer students.
Students who are not registered may not attend classes.
Adding, Dropping, and Withdrawing from Courses
Graduate students may add and drop courses during a specified period at the beginning of each semester/session online or by completing a form. No courses may be added after this period. Students may withdraw from courses up to a specified date near the end of each semester/session. Withdrawing from a course requires approval by the Associate Dean for Graduate Advising. Withdrawing from a course after the Add/Drop Period will be recorded as a "W" on the student’s official transcript. Students must officially drop or withdraw from courses; if they do not do so, courses will remain on transcripts with a grade of "F."
All students who drop or withdraw from courses are strongly urged to consult with the Office of Financial Aid.
Refunds of tuition in cases of dropping or withdrawing from courses are pro-rated downward beginning on the first day of the semester. Refunds of tuition charges are computed as of the date the student officially dropped the course. Refunds are pro-rated downward in steps beginning on the first day of classes for the semester. For the first two weeks of classes, a refund of 80% will be issued. For the third week, 60%. For the fourth week, 40%. For the fifth week, 20%. After the fifth week of classes, no refund will be issued.
All graduate students are given a Manhattanville e-mail address. All official communications with graduate students will occur through e-mail to that e-mail address. All forms are available online or through Graduate Advising. Registration can be carried out online through WebAdvisor on the college website, once a graduate student has contacted his/her advisor. Grades will be available through WebAdvisor as well.
All programs leading to New York State certification must provide 100 hours of field experience for candidates for degrees or advanced Certification programs. At Manhattanville, the field experience hours are incorporated into course assignments for required courses. Students should be aware that many required courses require a time commitment beyond the time in the college classroom. A course which requires field experiences cannot be passed unless the field experience hours are successfully completed. Field experience hours must be completed at the specified grade levels in specified types of schools. These typically cover the full range of grades for the certificate being sought and schools with a diverse student body.
Manhattanville Writing Assessment
All degree or Advanced Certification candidates must complete a writing assessment within the first six required education credits. Arrangements to complete the assessment can be made at the Graduate Advising Office. On the basis of the results, students may be required to successfully complete the Graduate Education Writing Tutorial before continuing or while they pursue the degree or program, or the tutorial may be recommended. Offered twice each semester, the Graduate Education Writing Tutorial is a non-credit bearing workshop; students register for the Tutorial through the Office of Graduate Advising. If there are exceptional extenuating circumstances, the results may be appealed once, only with the approval of the student’s advisor, who will contact the Chair of the Writing Committee. Students in the BA/MAT program are exempt.
Student/supervised teaching is the culmination of all degree and post-masters certification programs. Student teaching consists of minimally one complete semester of 14 weeks, following a full-time school schedule, and includes a weekly seminar. The weekly seminar is an integral part of student teaching and all course assignments for the seminar must be completed as assigned. Professional behavior and deportment are critical to successful teaching and will be assessed during the student teaching experience.
Placement of teacher candidates in classrooms for student teaching is a complex process, necessitating finding appropriate schools and grade levels to fulfill certification and degree requirements. Considerable time is also required to ensure that each candidate will be placed in the most suitable seminar group.
Therefore, candidates for student/supervised teaching in Fall semester must meet with the Office of Field Placement by March 15 of the preceding Spring semester. Candidates for student/supervised teaching in Spring semester must meet with the Office of Field Placement by October 15 of the preceding Fall. Students who do not meet these deadlines must postpone student teaching.
Candidates for student/supervised teaching must also schedule a review by Graduate Advising before meeting with the Office of Field Placement. With approval of the Office of Field Placement, students who are employed as teachers in an accredited school and teaching in the area of their degree or post-masters program may be able to use their own classrooms as their student teaching sites.
Students must be fully matriculated prior to beginning their student/supervised teaching.
All methods courses, a Child or Adolescent Development course, and most NYS liberal arts requirements for certification, and almost all other graduate coursework must be completed before student/supervised teaching, except in exceptional circumstances. The required New York State Teacher Certification exams must be successfully completed prior to student teaching. Candidates to student teach in Physical Education must have completed all but two of all certification and degree courses.
The creation of a Professional Portfolio is an integral part of the student/supervised teaching seminar. From the beginning of their programs, students are, therefore, advised to collect copies of their work: lesson and unit plans; assessments; photographs; and other evidence that they will build upon as they prepare the Professional Portfolio. Beginning with the Spring 2014 semester, for students completing a program or completing certification requirements in or after May 2014, an electronic portfolio will be required for certification. It will be completed during the student teaching semester in lieu of the paper portfolio. Students may still want to prepare some hard copy portfolio materials to take on job interviews.
Student teaching can be completed only in the Fall or Spring semesters; rare exceptions for in-service teachers completing a Masters degree in a subject or grade level other than the one they are currently teaching are sometimes possible. No summer placement can be guaranteed. Students must provide their own transportation to and from student teaching sites, the weekly seminar and field experience sites. Student teaching must be completed within a twenty-five mile radius from the college within Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Fairfield, or Bronx Counties.
Successful completion of student teaching does not automatically entail that the candidate is eligible for certification.
For additional information, please refer to the Student/Supervised Teaching Handbook in the Field Placement Office.
Courses in independent study format may be available in programs with smaller enrollments where courses may not be offered with regularity or in other programs where there are unavoidable course conflicts. Independent study courses are offered strictly with the approval of the faculty mentor and the Office of Graduate Advising. No more than two independent studies are allowed in a degree or certificate program.
Students in all programs must maintain a minimum average of B (cumulative GPA of 3.00). Professional behavior and dispositions are an important part of teaching success and will be part of assessment of students in courses. Students receiving a grade of C or below in any course or whose cumulative Grade Point Average is below 3.00 at the end of any semester will be subject to review by the Graduate Academic Standards Committee. At the discretion of the committee, this review could result in a requirement that the student repeat the course at the college or elsewhere or complete an equivalent course or be denied permission to register for further study in the School of Education. Grades below C will not count towards a degree or Post-masters Certification Program. If a student receives a C or below in any student teaching course or practicum, the course may be repeated only once, should approval be granted.
Repeating A Course
Graduate courses in which a grade above C has been earned may not be retaken for credit towards graduation. A student who earns a grade of C- or below must retake the same course or an approved equivalent course for completion of a graduate program or masters degree. Repeated courses will not count towards cumulative credits. A non-matriculated student who is taking a course for purposes of teacher certification may retake a graduate course if he/she has received a grade of C+ or below. This will not count towards cumulative credits earned.
For repeated coursework, both grades earned will count towards the cumulative GPA.
An incomplete or "Grade Deferred" is granted by the Associate Dean for Graduate Advising, with approval by the course instructor, for extraordinary reasons only and for a limited and specified period of time, where there is a realistic probability of successful completion of the course and achievement of course learning objectives. This is typically not to exceed one semester. If the work is not completed by the time specified on the Incomplete form, the student’s grade automatically reverts to an "F." An incomplete Grade Contract must be signed by the instructor, student, and Associate Dean.
Professional Development Credit
Courses taken for purposes of professional development may be taken on a Pass/Fail basis. A grade of "Pass" will be awarded for work equivalent to a B- or above. Students taking graduate courses for professional development credit must complete all assigned work for the course. Courses taken for professional development credit will not be reported on an official college transcript. Participants should verify with their schools or school districts whether such credit is acceptable towards professional development requirements.
Comprehensive Exam, Degree Portfolio or Final Project
All Masters degrees conferred in New York State must include a culminating experience. Depending on their programs, degree candidates are required to complete one or more culminating experiences as specified for the relevant program.
Different programs require comprehensive examinations at differing points in the Masters degree. Comprehensive examinations are offered twice a year, during the Fall and Spring semesters only. Students must register for the examination by the beginning of the semester in which they will take it. Students who fail the comprehensive examination may retake it only once and may be required to successfully complete the graduate education writing tutorial in the interim. Those who fail a second time will be required to substitute additional coursework which must include a substantial writing component and will be prohibited from registering for any other graduate education courses until this requirement has been satisfied. Students who fail the Special Education comprehensive examinations for the second time will be prohibited from continuing in the School of Education.
Final Projects in lieu of comprehensive exams will be due one month before the end of the semester of graduation. Students must register for final projects as they would for comprehensive exams. Students who fail the exams are not permitted to substitute a final project.
Culminating Experience Reports required for Childhood programs will be due during the semester prior to student teaching, except in limited cases where students have not completed all prerequiste courses.
Candidates in Teaching Languages Other Than English must also complete the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview and Written Proficiency Test of the American Council for Teaching Foreign Languages, with scores of "Advanced-Low" or above. Registration materials are available in Graduate Advising.
For further information on requirements, content, due dates, and timing, students are strongly advised to contact the chair of their department and to consult the "program" pages on the School of Education website.
Students who do not successfully meet these requirements will not graduate and will not be recommended for certification.
Note that the Student Teaching Portfolio completed during the student/supervised teaching semester or the CER required for degree in Childhood programs is not the certification portfolio required by NYS ED.
Intent to Graduate
It is the responsibility of students in all degree or advanced certification programs to notify the School of Education of their intent to graduate, by the beginning of the semester of graduation. "Intent to Graduate" forms are available in the Graduate Advising Office and due dates are posted in many locations.
The School of Education strongly supports the college’s mission to "educate students to become ethically and socially responsible leaders for the global community." Professional behavior, demeanor, and appearance are critical aspects of responsibility and leadership with children and colleagues. Professional conduct is expected of candidates at all times.
We promote and rely on mutual respect, civility, concern for others and academic integrity. Academic dishonesty undermines all of these. All forms of academic dishonesty, unfair advantage, and plagiarism will have consequences in all instances. For any act of academic dishonesty, the School of Education may impose one or more of the following sanctions: Rewriting the assignment and/or failing the assignment, failing the course, taking an LIS workshop, not being recommended for certification, and/or being expelled from the graduate program. In all cases where academic dishonesty is suspected, both faculty members and students have the obligation to bring the matter to the attention of the relevant Department Chair. All students will be held accountable to this policy whether or not the course syllabus explicitly specifies a policy on academic integrity.
The School of Education values collaboration, emotional maturity, flexibility, honesty and integrity, professionalism, respect, responsibility, and reverence for learning.
These values are indicated by respectful action towards college faculty and classmates in classrooms and on-campus. We believe that a candidate’s ability to behave professionally and respectfully is diagnostic of his/her ability to behave professionally and effectively as an educator. We, therefore, expect candidates to model as graduate students the same behaviors they will follow in their own practice as educators. We expect and will observe and assess professionalism and respect in classrooms, at campus events, and in other professional settings.
Instances of unprofessional behavior which is not immediately rectified will be reported to and recorded by the appropriate Department Chair and/or Associate Dean. Candidates who exhibit a serious, documented lack of professional dispositions will be subject to a range of sanctions including, but not limited to a course grade being lowered, failure of the course, denial of college recommendation for certification, and/or expulsion from the School of Education.
For further information, definitions, and detailed adjudication and appeals processes, please consult the School of Education Graduate Student Code of Community Conduct. The Code of Conduct is available on the college website and in the Office of Graduate Advising.
It is each student’s responsibility to become familiar with these materials.
Please refer to the Manhattanville College Code of Community Conduct for the college’s policies on harassment, bias acts, and sexual misconduct, and confidentiality and academic freedom.
More than two absences can affect the course grade; individual courses may have more restrictive policies.
At Manhattanville, grievance procedures exist for students who feel they have received truly biased or unfair treatment by a faculty member.
3. If the issue remains open, the student may appeal in writing to the Dean of the School of Education within five business days of receipt of communication from the Associate Dean. The Dean will form a grievance committee for a hearing, including the Provost, an Associate Dean, and one faculty member, either from the college or the School of Education. The Dean will serve ex-officio. The decision of the grievance committee will be conveyed by letter to the concerned parties.
4. The decision of the grievance committee may be appealed to the President only on the basis of procedural unfairness or new evidence that might result in a different decision. Such an appeal must be made in writing within 5 business days after receipt of the letter from the grievance committee.
In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the College strives to ensure that “no otherwise qualified individual with a disability shall, solely by reason of her or his disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program administered by the college.”
Students with a documented disability should register with the Director of Disability Services and must provide documentation. Documentation must date no more than three years prior to matriculation. Students should consult the Director of Disability Services at 914 323-7127 on acceptable documentation. All documentation is confidential.
At the beginning of each semester, a student who is registered with the Office of Disability Services should request in writing from the Director the accommodations that he/she needs to be successful in coursework. The Director provides each of the students’ professors a letter outlining the appropriate accommodations. It is the students’ responsibility to make arrangements with the professor each time the accommodation is to be provided (e.g. before each test).
For further information, contact the Director of Disability Services.
TEACHER CERTIFICATION IS CONFERRED BY NEW YORK STATE UPON APPLICATION BY THE STUDENT TO THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATION BY THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION ON BEHALF OF DEGREE OR PROGRAM COMPLETERS.
New York State Liberal Arts Requirements
Initial certification in most subject areas requires the following Liberal Arts Prerequisites. These can be completed at any regionally accredited institution of higher education, must be reported on an official transcript, and must have earned a letter grade of C or better. Documentation of course content via a syllabus, course catalog or other means may be requested. Satisfaction of a content requirement granted by an accredited institution of higher education reported on an official transcript, by means other than coursework, may satisfy these prerequisites. A minimum of thirty credits in Liberal Arts is required.
New York State considers Liberal Arts courses to be those that are of a general and/or theoretical nature, and designed to develop understanding about one’s relationship to the social, cultural and natural facets of the total environment. Working corollaries for counting liberal arts courses are:
Courses offered in the areas of English, some Dance and Theater courses, Languages, Musicology and Music Theory, History, Art History and Theory, Philosophy, some Religious Studies, Area Studies, Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences, among others, are generally considered Liberal Arts.

No courses graded Pass/Fail can be accepted toward coursework requirements, unless the credit-granting policies of the relevant college can be documented.
Determination as to whether a specific course is acceptable in meeting this requirement will be made by the Associate Dean for Graduate Advising, in consultation with the faculty where needed. A course designated as meeting a specific distribution requirement by a college does NOT automatically qualify.
Coursework is required in:
Mathematics – Most courses taught by a Mathematics department are acceptable.
Science – Most courses taught by Natural Science departments or under the heading of Natural or Physical Science are acceptable. APPLIED courses (i.e., engineering, resource management, or animal husbandry) are NOT generally acceptable.
Literature – Most courses taught by an English department are acceptable, EXCLUDING composition. Courses in world literatures, foreign languages and comparative literature are generally acceptable.
Foreign Languages – Any language other than English, including American Sign Language, is acceptable. Six credits or the equivalent are required; study at the intermediate level is accepted as an equivalent.
History – Courses taught by a History department are acceptable. Historically-based courses in other social science areas may be acceptable when documented and will be evaluated on an individual basis. Courses in the history of a discipline or history of ideas are not acceptable.
Study is also required of: Written Analysis and Expression; Visual and Performing Arts; Oral Communication (Communication is defined as practice in close and critical reading and conveying of information orally.)
Credit for Life Experience
Candidates who enter the graduate program with significant life experience in Visual or Performing arts, Oral Communication, or Writing, although without formal college coursework in the subject, may petition for credit towards the relevant New York State certification pre-requisite. This will be possible only in those three areas. The petition will consist of an essay of 3-5 pages and documentation of the experience. This material will be evaluated the Associate Dean for Graduate Advising, in consultation with appropriate faculty. Documentation of the experience may take a variety of forms, including but not limited to copies of art work or writing, recommendation by a mentor, published reviews, published work, event programs, etc.
New York State Content Core Requirements
Every Manhattanville candidate for an initial teaching certificate must complete at least 30 credits in Liberal Arts including at least 18 credits in ONE Liberal Arts discipline. A major or course designated as Liberal Arts by another college does NOT automatically qualify.
For ALL Secondary subjects, Art, and Music, the candidate must present at least 30 credits in the area of certification. Specific content requirements for each secondary area are specified in the relevant program plan.
New York State Examination and Portfolio Requirements
Candidates for NY certification must achieve qualifying scores on the appropriate tests in the New York State Teacher Certification Examination (NYSTCE) Program and must submit a portfolio electronically to NYS ED.
SPECIFIC EXAM REQUIREMENTS ARE CHANGING FOR ALL THOSE APPLYING FOR CERTIFICATION AFTER FEBRUARY, 2014. For further information on specific tests for all certification titles, students can consult http://www.highered.nysed.gov/tcert and the Graduate Advising Office.
Child Abuse Identification and Reporting and School Violence Prevention
The New York State Education Department requires all candidates for certification to complete a two-hour seminar on identifying and reporting suspected child abuse and maltreatment and a two-hour seminar on school violence prevention and intervention. The seminars are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters, only for students who are completing student teaching or the literacy practicum in that semester, for a fee. If the seminars are completed elsewhere, proof of completion must be provided to the college.
Fingerprinting is required prior to doing Field Experience and Student/Supervised Teaching. Fingerprint information and required forms are available at www.nysed.gov. Applications for clearance must be filed and a fee paid electronically with NY State.
The School of Education will submit a recommendation to NYS ED for those who have met all requirements for certification through the college, only in the area of the degree or program. Those seeking professional certification must notify the Certification Officer in the School of Education.
NYS ED accepts only on-line certification applications. After the recommendation has been submitted by the college, the student must apply online at www.nysed.gov and pay the required fee.
