Plan of Study

Plan of Study Preparation

All students are required to complete a Plan of Study by the end of their first quarter in the program. For advising and instructions to submit your form, refer to the Plan of Study section of the Student Handbook. Following is a summary of the process:

  • Must be on file with Graduate School after first quarter of study

  • Financial Aid reviews plans and will limit aid to approved coursework

  • No more than 10 credits of 400 level courses allowed on graduate plan of study

  • Limit of 12 quarter hours of transfer work (internal or external); if you have questions refer to the section about Transfer Credits in the Student Handbook

  • From your student email account, fill out the Plan of Study esign form and email to AHE Program Staff 

  • After you submit your Plan of Study esign form, the system will generate an email to your student account with a link to this esign form - be sure to save this email.  This will be very helpful to you throughout your program, as you will always have a link to view/print your original Plan of Study. 

  • When the AHE Program Staff receives your form, the receipt date is recorded and the form forwarded to the program director for approval and then submitted to the Graduate School.

  • After review and approval, the Graduate School will lock the esign form which completes the process.

*Please note: If a Plan of Study is not submitted by the end of the first quarter, the Graduate School will place a hold on your registration account. As soon as a Plan of Study is submitted and approved, the hold will be removed.
