The Plan of Study should be completed and submitted to the Graduate School for final approval when not more than twelve credits of course work to be offered for the degree have been completed. The successful completion of all work indicated on the Plan of Study is a fundamental prerequisite for the conferring of the degree. The Plan of Study must be signed by the student and by each member of the advisory committee (major advisor and a minimum of 2 associate advisors) before submission to the Graduate School for final approval. When fully approved, copies of the Plan of Study are returned to the student and to the major advisor.

Transfer Credits

Students may transfer up to 6 course credits for work that was not completed at UConn, provided this work was not used to earn a degree at another institution. A grade of B or better (not B-) must have been awarded for this work. Transfer credits will only be approved upon submitting a Plan of Study to the Graduate School. An official transcript from the other institution, along with the course description and/or syllabi, will be required.
