The ultimate responsibility for fulfilling graduation requirements rests with the individual student. At the time of admission, in consultation with his/her advisor, each student reviews his/her academic program to make certain that requirements for the degree are being met satisfactorily. In addition to the requirements listed here, programs may have additional requirements. Each student is responsible for communicating with program advisors to ensure that all prerequisite and required coursework and associated activities such as internships, theses, and portfolios are identified, scheduled, and completed. Any requests for exceptions not specifically addressed by stated policies and procedures can be made to the appropriate graduate school dean.
