In response to requests from current students as well as graduates from our certification program in school psychology, the following information is being disseminated regarding the correct appellative for use in professional practice.

Graduates who are awarded an Educational Specialist Certificate in School Psychology may use either of the following options to accurately reflect their degree status and advanced graduate training.

  1. Your name, M.Ed., Ed.S. Certificate
  2. Your name, M.Ed., CAGS

Please note that both options are equivalent, with CAGS being interpreted as a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study. You may direct any further questions to Dr. Mark R. McGowan, program coordinator.
