Credit shall not be allowed for both work experience and master's or doctoral degree credit obtained during the same time period.

(4) Work experience credit shall not be allowed for work performed before graduation with the baccalaureate degree.
(d) Each applicant shall supply at least three references from professional engineers who are licensed in the United States and are familiar with the applicant's engineering experience.
