Every program has a standard structure. The course load per semester varies by program. Follow the structure.
|Example 1: History||Example 2: Biostatistics|
|AM: 4-4||AM: 3-2-2-1
What's at stake if you vary from the structure: Deviation could affect completion and tuition cost. There can be visa implications for international students who deviate from the program structure.
Examples of deviation:
- Adding a course
- Dropping a course
- Changing a course for credit to audit
If you contemplate making a change, be sure to seek approval first from both your DGS and the Graduate School. The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs is your point of contact at the Graduate School.
