All students must have a program of study developed in consultation with their academic advisors and signed by the student, advisor, and department chair. The program of study must list all required courses and electives. As students complete courses, the program of study should be updated by the academic advisor to indicate the semester courses were taken and the grades earned. Any changes to the program of study must be requested by submitting the Request for Change of Graduate Degree Program of Study form posted on the Graduate School website. A copy of the updated program of study must be submitted when applying for admission to candidacy.
