Educational Leadership Advanced Certificate Graduation Requirements
- Completion of 30 approved graduate credits of study in educational leadership;

- Successful completion of 400 internship hours; and
- Submission of the culminating electronic program portfolio in EDL 720 (The Leadership Experience).
The New York State Education Department has made passing the New York State Education Leadership Assessment in SDL a condition of program completion (for SDL programs only as per State regulations). A student enrolled in the Advanced Certificate leading to SDL certification who does not pass the SDL assessment can enter what the State has termed a "companion program," whereby the student can still receive the Advanced Certificate but will not be eligible for SDL certification at that time. The companion program has the same admission requirements, curriculum, and graduation requirements; however, students who do not pass the SDL assessment will not receive New York State SDL certification.
