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.
Graduation Policy (Class of 2019 and onward)
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, and program requirements. This includes satisfying state requirements (e.g., credit deficiencies, workshops, etc.).
In order to walk in graduation and have your name listed in the ceremony program, you must complete the Relay academic program and pay all outstanding balances on your account at least three weeks prior to the graduation ceremony. Official transcripts and diplomas will be held if you have an outstanding balance due to Relay.
