Graduate students are encouraged to develop a plan of study with the Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Dawn Beichner. Refer to the online Graduate Catalog and the Graduate School website for additional information.
Plan of Study
During a graduate student's second semester in the Master's Program, he or she must submit a plan of study to the Graduate School, indicating whether they will complete a thesis or take comprehensive exams.
Graduate students who complete degree requirements during the fall semester participate in commencement exercises in December; students who complete degree requirements during the spring semester or at the close of the summer session participate in commencement exercises in May.
Participation in commencement is voluntary. However, students planning to participate in commencement ceremonies MUST complete and submit the commencement Participation Form by the scheduled deadlines. Visit the Commencement website for more information.
