Progress to Degree Checklists

The Progress to Degree Checklists are designed to help students navigate their progress to degree by providing a chronological framework that, semester by semester, lists significant milestones, forms, and ideas to consider as students fulfill Program of Study (POS) requirements and begin their professionalization.

Degree Planning Sheets (DPS)

The DPS helps students plan and document how they will meet program of study requirements, and they will work on this form in consultation with their program adviser/major professor. This departmental form also serves as a useful tool to help students complete the online Graduate College Program of Study and Committee Form (POSC) in their AccessPlus account.
