Catalog Requirements for New Students

Students are required to comply with the policies, degree, major, licensure or certificate requirements stated in the University Catalog in effect for the first semester/term of enrollment following acceptance. Students enrolled for the first time in summer sessions will follow the requirements of the Catalog in effect for the following fall semester/term.


After acceptance, a student is assigned an academic advisor by the department program director or chairperson. The advisor introduces the student to graduate policies, procedures and programs. Together the advisor and the student develop a plan of study. A copy of this plan is filed with the department program director. It is the student’s responsibility to complete the plan. Continued consultation with the advisor is expected. Graduate students in the education program must meet with their advisor to obtain approval to register for each semester or term.
