Relay students must demonstrate that they have mastery of the knowledge and
techniques they have learned at Relay and are using these assets to successfully lead their PK–
12 students to meaningful and measurable achievement gains. To these ends, in order to
graduate, students are required to:
1. Lead PK–12 students to the equivalent of at least one year’s worth of academic gains.
2. Earn a minimum grade of 70% (or a C-) in all courses in their programs of study.
3. Earn a cumulative 2.7 grade point average (GPA). Overall GPA is a weighted cumulative
average of all course grades in the program to date.
In order to graduate from Relay, earn a master's degree (or, in non-degree-seeking programs,
complete the program), and be eligible for the next level of certification (when appropriate),
you must complete all academic, administrative, financial, and program
requirements. This includes paying all outstanding bills and, when appropriate, satisfying state
requirements (e.g., credit deficiencies, workshops, etc.).
In order to walk in graduation and have your name listed in the ceremony's program, you must complete the Relay academic program and have no holds on their account at least two weeks prior to the graduation ceremony.
