Changing Degree Plans
In order to change degree plans, the student meets with her or his advisor to discuss the change, who then requests approval from the Graduate Chair.
From Plan A to Plan B. A student may change from Plan A to Plan B at any time.
From Plan B to Plan A. Changing from Plan B to Plan A should be done as early as possible in the student’s academic career, before too many electives have been taken. Before requesting such a change, a student wishing to change to Plan A must work out a thesis topic and a plan of research and must establish a tentative thesis committee, including a chair. The student then works with his/her advisor and proposed thesis supervisor to complete the change.
Note: Students are not permitted to change from Plan B to Plan A if they have submitted a scholarly paper that has been judged unsatisfactory.
