Only education beyond the second graduate year can be considered in this calculation. To combine education and experience, convert quarter hours to semester hours by multiplying by the fraction 2/3. Then, divide your number of graduate semester hours in excess of the first 36 hours by the number 18 (or the number your school uses to represent one year of graduate education). Divide months of qualifying specialized experience by 12. These two numbers must equal 100 percent when combined. NOTE: To qualify under this option you must submit transcripts to verify your education and include proof of your experience in the text of your resume.
