Admission to a program leading to the master’s degree does not imply admission to candidacy for a degree. Students must file an application for admission to candidacy for the MA degree and complete the candidacy requirements before registering for courses beyond 12 semester hours. The candidate’s advisor shall recommend an applicant’s admission to candidacy following positive appraisal of the student’s academic proficiency and other factors deemed important for the completion of the particular curriculum in which the student is working.

Admission to candidacy for the master’s degree includes an application, completion of certain requirements, including GRST 500, and approval of the Graduate Council.
