Each student must meet the special requirements of the major department. Each student must comply with all policies and legislation concerning curricula or work leading to graduate degrees as formulated by the Graduate Council and administered by the Dean of the Graduate School as authorized by the Board of Regents and the Chancellor and President of the University.
When a master’s student is accepted into a program, the dean, director, or department chair will appoint an academic advisor who is responsible for the student’s program until an advisory committee is appointed. The name of the student’s advisor will be included in the official letter of acceptance sent to the student by the Graduate School. The student will develop a degree plan with the advisor upon completion of twelve semester credit hours, subject to final approval by the advisory committee, department chair, academic dean (as required), and Dean of the Graduate School.
