Submitting Degree Programs

Be sure to submit your degree program according to the following timelines:

M.A.: After completing 10 credits (ordinarily no later than the second semester of your first year).

Specialist: After completing 20 credits (ordinarily no later than the second semester of your first year).

Ph.D.: After completing four semesters. The Educational Psychology Department requires doctoral students to submit their degree program forms to the DGS prior to taking the written general preliminary examination. This should be by the end of the second year of graduate study, and at least one semester prior to the term in which you plan to take the prelim oral exam.

For those who are approaching these deadlines, submit degree programs by Friday, April 27.

For detailed information on submitting the degree program, see the Ed Psych Student Handbook.You will also need to submit approvals from your committee members. You can either attach their emails to your degree program forms or have them sign our Examining Committee Consent form.

Remember that degree programs can be changed in the future through a simple petition process. Be sure to submit the petition form prior to taking courses for which you are requesting a change.

PLEASE NOTE: A hold will be placed on your record at the DGS's request if:

-- You are in the M.A. program and do not submit your degree program form by the time you complete 14 credits;
-- You are in the Specialist program and do not submit your degree program form by the time you complete 24 credits;
-- You are in the Ph.D. program and fail to submit your degree program form by the time you complete four semesters.

You will be unable to register, to obtain a transcript, etc. until the hold is released by the DGS.

If you have questions, be sure to contact Kathy Walter, 624-1698, 250 Ed Sci B.
