Plan of Study
All degree-seeking graduate students should have an approved Plan of Study (POS) 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 email confirmation when their Plan of Study is approved by the Graduate College.
Graduate students will submit their Plans of Study electronically using a system called MyPOS.
To access MyPOS:
1. Log in to your MyFAU account at myfau.fau.edu
3. Click on the MyPOS icon

MyPOS Quick Guide
Plan of Study Revisions
As a student progresses through the graduate program, it may become necessary to modify an approved POS. If your approved POS was submitted only through the MyPOS system, any revisions must also be submitted online. Please note that if you have an approved paper POS on file, you must use the paper form (Form 9) to modify your POS. 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. Departments may have more stringent requirements for POS revisions; please discuss POS requirements with your advisor.
Plan of Study for Graduate Assistants Receiving Tuition Benefits
Note for graduate students receiving tuition benefits (eligible GAs, GRAs, and GTAs): An approved POS 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 POS and obtain final approval from the Graduate College by the end of the second semester of the assistantship. For additional information about teaching, research, and graduate assistantships, please visit our Graduate Assistantships page.
