Graduate Degree Plans

Graduate programs are highly individualized based on the student's career goals.  Because of this individualization, graduate advising is primarily handled by the student's major advisor and the student's graduate committee.  The student, advisor, and committee are expected to be up-to-date on the current degree options and restrictions in the Graduate Catalog.  When the student, advisor, and committee are satisfied with the desired program of study for the student, a "degree plan" or "program of study" needs to be filed with the Graduate School.  This degree plan is to be filed after the student has completed 12 hours of graduate coursework.  This rule holds for both MSEE and PhD students.  It is advisable to file this plan as soon as possible after the 12 hour point so that the student has a chance to make any changes before the final semester if one of the administrative checks (Department Head or Graduate School) does not approve the proposed program of study.  The Klipsch School also requires an internal record check with the degree plan filing.

If the student, advisor, and committee wish to change the proposed plan of study from that listed in the degree plan, a change of program will also need to be completed and filed.

If transfer credits are part of the program, then both the Klipsch School transfer checklist and the Graduate School Transfer of Credit form will also need to be completed to supplement the program of study form.
