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.

Students admitted to the MAT program will be given information on how to complete the POS. The POS will be processed in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, then filed with 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Graduate work is graded A, B, C, D, F, credit/no-credit, pass/fail, incomplete, or withdrawn.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 can be found in KSIS.
