Requests for course waivers must be submitted in writing to the M.J. Director during the student’s first semester in the program.
A waiver does not award a student graduate credit, nor does it reduce the number of credits needed for the degree. Plus the comprehensive exam. Students must complete 40 credit hours of graduate work.
Continuous enrollment for fall and spring semesters is required from the initial matriculation to graduation. Leaves of absence may be requested. If 36 credits have been completed, but not the comprehensive exam, when the next semester begins, a student must register for at least one credit of graduate work per semester until satisfactorily completing the exam.
