leading to such a degree, or an LL.M. in a related field from an accredited
college or university that demonstrates the knowledge, skills, and abilities
necessary to do the work of this position may be substituted for the experience
required at the GS-11 level. One year of full-time graduate education is considered
to be the number of credit hours that the school attended has determined to represent
1 year of full-time study. If that information cannot be obtained from the
school, 18 semester hours should be considered as satisfying the 1 year of
full-time study requirement. Part-time graduate education is creditable in

attended. If you are using education to qualify, transcripts are requested.

year) may be used to qualify. To calculate the combination of education and
experience, determine the amount of experience you have as a percentage of the
experience required for the grade level. Then determine the amount of education
you have as a percentage of the education required for the grade level. Add the
two percentages; the total percentage must equal at least 100% to qualify for
the grade level. If you qualify by a combination, your experience must be
detailed in your resume and transcripts are requested.
