GRADUATE EDUCATION: One academic year of graduate education is considered to be the number of credit hours that your graduate school has determined to represent one academic year of full-time study. Such study may have been performed on a full-time or part-time basis.

D. Have less than the full amount of graduate education described in "B" (one full year) and less than the amount of experience described in "C," but have a combination of the type of graduate education described in "B" and the type of experience described in "C." COMBINATION OF EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE: If you do not qualify based on education or experience alone, you can combine your education and experience by converting each to a percentage and then adding the percentages.(If your education is currently described in quarter hours, convert the quarter hours into semester hours by multiplying the quarter hours by the fraction 2/3.) For GS-7: To calculate your percentage of graduate education divide the number of graduate semester hours by 18.

To determine your percentage of qualifying experience, you must divide your total number of months of qualifying experience by the required number of months of experience. GS-07: Requires 12 months of specialized experience as described in "C" above. Now add your percentages of education and experience. The two percentages must total at least 100% for you to qualify under the combination of education and experience.
