Glossary for Table 2-c
Doctoral. Students enrolled in a graduate level program with the intent to achieve a doctoral degree as a terminal award for the program enrollment. The student may be at any point in pursuing this degree objective and achieved graduate credits do not affect the determination of this variable.
First-Professional. Students enrolled in a professional school or program that requires at least two academic years of college work for entrance and a total of at least six years for a degree.
Master’s. Students enrolled in a graduate level program with the intent to achieve a master’s degree as a terminal award for the program enrollment.
Non-Degree-Seeking Graduate Students with a Bachelor’s Degree. Students who have previously earned a baccalaureate degree and are enrolled in graduate courses, but who are not recognized by the institution as pursuing a degree or other formal award. Students pursuing post-baccalaureate teaching licensure exclusively and classified by the institution as graduate students should be reported as non-degree seeking.
Specialist. Students enrolled in a graduate level program with the intent to achieve a specialist degree as a terminal award for the program enrollment.
Certificate with a Masters. An award that requires completion of an organized program beyond the master's degree, but does not meet the requirements of academic degrees at the doctor's level.
Post-baccalaureate Certificate. An award that requires completion of an organized program of study beyond the bachelor's. It is designed for persons who have completed a baccalaureate degree, but does not meet the requirements of a master's degree. NOTE: Even though Teacher Preparation certificate programs may require a bachelor's degree for admission, they are considered subbacalaureate undergraduate programs, and students in these programs are undergraduate students.
