Completed in consultation with the faculty program adviser, the Plan of Study details
specific courses, exit option and other requirements you must complete in order to earn your graduate degree.
Plan of Study Approval
Graduate Council has recommended each
graduate student consult with their faculty adviser during the first
semester, and no later than the end of the first year in their graduate
program to develop a written Plan of Study. The Plan of Study, approved
by your graduate program adviser, must be submitted to Graduate Study
and Lifelong Learning in order to update your Online Degree Evaluation (WebCAPP).
Approved Plan of Study
An approved plan of study may be amended at any time.
Until formal approval of an updated Plan of Study is made, your original
or current modification of the plan will remain in effect. You are
responsible for meeting with your faculty adviser on an ongoing basis
and keeping your Plan of Study updated, as needed.
