Students entering Fall 2016 or later will no longer use the Graduate Degree Plan form. Students will now begin using the online GPAS system to build and submit a plan for approval. Click here for instructions.


Transfer Credits: Please do NOT use the GPAS planner for transfer credits; instead download the form here. Once you have the required signatures, submit the form and a copy of the transcript to the Graduate Program Coordinator.
