See the Graduate School's website for complete details regarding graduation procedures. The following information is particularly useful for satisfying the requirements for M.S. and Ph.D. students.
Plan of Study
Graduate students should work with a graduate advisor to develop a Plan of Study to submit to the Graduate School. Plans of Study are required for both MS and PhD students. See the Graduate Handbook for requirements regarding Plans of Study.
Intent to Graduate
Intent forms and instructions for submission are available at the Graduate School's website. Intent to Graduate forms are typically due very early in the semester you intend to graduate, so be careful not to miss these deadlines.
Last Day to Change Grades
If you have an incomplete in any course on your degree plan, you must complete this work at least 1 month prior to the grades due deadline (refer to academic calendar or graduate website for current semester deadlines). Please see the advising office for instructions on changing your I or CR grade once the work is complete.
M.S. Final Evaluation
All non-thesis masters' level students are required to pass a final comprehensive evaluation. Notices are posted each long semester for students expecting to graduate in that semester (summer students should sign up for the evaluation in the spring semester) and will provide details of the evaluation dates and deadlines.
All defenses must be advertised two weeks in advance and are open to the public. You must schedule your defense with your advisory committee and must provide a copy of your defense advertisement to a graduate advisor at least two weeks prior to the defense. See your advisor for the sample defense advertisement.
