Advisor and Program of Study
Every master’s degree student must file a Program of Study (POS) with the Graduate School, which is a formal list of the courses the student intends to take to fulfill the requirements of the degree. The Program of Study should consist solely of courses directly related to the master’s degree. MAT students must file their POS prior to beginning the program.
To initiate the process of preparing the Program of Study, students are to contact Shelly Houser (firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-5904) who will assist with the process. After the POS is complete, the advisor and program committee members will sign the form. The head of the academic unit must then endorse the Program of Study and forward it to the Dean of the Graduate School.
Graduate work is graded A, B, C, D, F, credit/no-credit, pass/fail, incomplete, or withdrawn. For graduate credit, the grade in a course must be C or higher. To remain in good standing, a student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Grades are not mailed. Final grade reports are viewed and printed in KSIS.
