Program of Study
You may already have a program of study developed in unison with your advisor. But if not, the following Google Sheets may be utilized. Be sure to make a copy and save with your own file name. (File | Make a copy...) Additionally, it's ideal to share the sheet so that student and advisor both have editing rights.
1. Create a Program of Study and update it regularly
Program of Study Google Sheet for all programs, with tabs for MS, EdS, and Certificate with required courses entered. Includes an EdS tab for students that already have an MS in educational technology and those that do not.
2. Check your progress via the Central Degree Audit each semester before you register for classes. Be aware that these audits are not always correct. You and your advisor will want to compare it with your Program of Study to be sure they align.
3. Graduate Catalog - Read through for detailed information about policies pertaining to your degree.
