I work full-time at a position that was not deemed relevant for PER. How can I fulfill this requirement?

We generally recommend that students in your position either seek out stretch assignments at work or do something similar. The purpose of the Professional Experience Requirement is to help bring your specialization coursework to life outside the classroom as well as give you new opportunities to help you professionally once you graduate from Wagner.

I have already successfully completed credits at Wagner. Will the classes I have completed be converted to the new credit system?

No, all Wagner courses taken in Summer 2015 and earlier will remain as they appear on the transcript under the 4-credit/2-credit system. Please see the grid at the end the Credit Conversion FAQ PDF to learn how to calculate remaining credits needed.
