PROGRAM OF STUDY FORMS
Program of Study forms are due to the Student Affairs Office by the end of your first semester in the program. This form should be completed and reviewed by your faculty advisor prior to submission. Every time a change is made to your Program of Study, you must review the change with your faculty advisor, fill out a new form, and submit to the Student Affairs Office as soon as possible. Important: The Graduate School does not accept initial Program of Study forms in a student’s final semester of graduate study.
