Plan of Study
All degree-seeking graduate students should have an approved Plan of Study on file with the Graduate College no later than half-way through their required course work and before enrolling in thesis/dissertation credits, if applicable. Students must have an approved Plan of Study on file with the Graduate College prior to the term in which they intend to graduate. All students receive written confirmation when their Plan of Study is approved by the Dean of the Graduate College.
Effective Immediately: Graduate students will submit their Plans of Study electronically using a system called MyPOS.
Note: Students with existing Plans of Study will submit the Form 9 Revision to make any changes.

Plan of Study Revisions: As a student progresses through his/her graduate program, it may become necessary to modify an approved Plan of Study. Changes to an approved Plan of Study require the submission and approval of the Form 9 - Revision to Existing Plan of Study. Revisions need only be filed once and may be submitted during the final term the student plans to graduate, prior to the Application for Degree deadline.
Note for graduate students receiving tuition benefits: An approved Plan of Study is required to receive tuition benefits beyond the second semester of the assistantship. Students receiving tuition benefits as part of an assistantship are required to file a Plan of Study and obtain final approval from the Graduate College by the end of the second semester of the assistantship.
