What is expected of Fellows during the FELPS program?
I cannot attend the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service all-day Orientation. Can I still apply for the program?
Unfortunately, no. The Orientation is mandatory for all Fellows. If you cannot attend the Orientation this year, we encourage you to apply next year.
Are there scholarships or payment plans available for the Fellowship for Emerging Leaders in Public Service?
How can I check my progress to ensure that I'm ready for graduation?
The Registrar's office sends a Graduation Checksheet to all students who applied for graduation. Students should review this checksheet for accuracy and/or missing degree requirements and contact their appropriate program administrator for assistance.
Does this credit system conversion have an impact on the value of my degree?
No, nothing about the degree is changing; graduate schools across the US and throughout the world have varying credit structures. You will continue to attend classes for the same amount of time and faculty will cover the same content as before the conversion.
Will the credit system conversion affect all programs?
The changes will be implemented for all master’s programs at Wagner (MUP; MPA PNP, Health, Executive) as well as the Non-Degree and Advanced Certificate programs. The doctoral program will remain on a 4-credit system.
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.
With the credit system conversion, will I still be able to graduate on time?
Your graduation will not be delayed by the conversion. Current students will be required to complete the same number of courses as previously required.
