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 and 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 and program requirements. This includes satisfying state requirements (e.g., credit deficiencies, workshops, etc.). Your program completion/degree conferral date will be the end of the term you complete all academic and program requirements (outstanding balances does not determine program completion/degree conferral dates).
Graduates with an outstanding balance may participate in their campus graduation ceremonies. Official proof of graduation or program completion, including transcripts, diplomas, and certification verification will be withheld for students until their outstanding balance has been resolved with Relay
