12.2 Programs of Study
Every graduate student must file with the Graduate School, a Program of Study designed by the student’s advisor, graduate committee and/or program director (and dean of the school or college, where appropriate) that constitutes the courses required to earn the degree from the program to which the student was admitted. Graduate program directors or department chairs are responsible for submitting approved Programs of Study to the Graduate School no later than the end of the first semester of enrollment for master’s students. Doctoral programs of study are submitted in accordance with timelines established for the program.
Only courses that are on an approved Program of Study and have been completed with grade of “C” or better will count toward a graduate degree. Changes in the Program of Study must be approved by the student’s advisor, graduate committee chair and/or the program director or department chair (and unit dean, where appropriate), with final approval by Dean of Research and Graduate Studies.
