From EDL to Ed.D.: Stony Brook's Educational Leadership Program Partners with College and Universities To Help Alumni Earn Doctoral Degrees
Stony Brook University has several exclusive partnership programs with colleges and universities that allow alumni of SPD's graduate programs to further their education by pursuing doctoral degrees. Articulation agreements with St. John's University, Seton Hall University, Hofstra University, Fordham University and Dowling College confer unique benefits to EDL alumni that may include shortened time to degree completion, tuition discounts, or both.
The agreements vary by program. Please review the information below and contact the representatives from the individual institutions for more details.
EDL and SDBL alumni who have successfully completed their program are encouraged to apply to St. John University's Ed.D. program in Administrative and Instructional Leadership. Admitted students can transfer up to 30 graduate credits from Stony Brook's Educational Leadership program into the St. John's program, significantly shortening the time to degree completion.
Of the remaining courses required for the Ed.D., the first two will be held on the Stony Brook University campus at SUNY graduate tuition rates. Thereafter, the remainder of the program will be completed at St. John’s at its Oakdale campus at St. John’s graduate tuition rate.

SPD’s Educational Leadership Advanced Graduate Certificate program fully articulates with Seton Hall University’s Executive Ed.D. Program in Educational Administration. The Ed.D. program requires only 54 credits to the doctorate after acceptance of 45 transfer credits, including credits earned in SPD's Educational Leadership program and other course work from your master’s degree.
The SHU program is an intensive program involving weekends and summers especially designed for working administrators so that they can fully take advantage of this opportunity on a part-time basis so as to not interfere with work, family and other obligations.

Graduates of SPD's master degrees and post-master advanced graduate certificates have the opportunity to take six credits in Dowling College's Ed.D.
