After performing satisfactorily for a minimum of one semester, the student completes the Plan of Study for the Master’s Degree (M1) form (or the Plan of Study for the Dual Master’s Degree (DM1) form if the student is enrolled in a dual master’s degree program) with the advisor’s assistance. The form is forwarded through the program’s director of graduate studies to the Office of Graduate Studies for approval.
The plan of study form must be filed with the Office of Graduate Studies by the end of the student’s second semester of enrollment. Upon approval of the program by the Office of Graduate Studies, the student is a candidate for the degree.
Changes to the plan of study should be submitted on the Plan of Study Course Substitution form.
