Students planning to complete the Master’s in Academic Advising this summer have a number of requirements to accomplish in order to graduate. First, please e-mail Pam McGlynn, our program assistant, to let her know you are planning to complete degree requirements this summer.
If you are planning to complete the master’s degree this summer, your academic advising portfolio is to be submitted to your advisor by June 24, 2011. This is the culminating activity for the program and will be evaluated by your program committee. A Word file of the portfolio requirements is available on the Resources page of the blog. The portfolio is expected to be a high quality, graduate document developed during the program. Please contact your advisor or Ken Hughey should you have questions about the academic advising portfolio.
The second activity is to submit the Approval to Schedule Final Exam form (A Word file of the form can be found on the Resources page of the blog.) to Pam McGlynn by May 25, 2011. On this form, complete the following three items at the top center of the page: Name; K-State eID; and Student Number (WID, 9-digit number beginning with an 8). After completing this information, the file is to be e-mailed to Pam and she will complete the rest of the form. Also, she will obtain the required signatures and forward it to the Graduate School. This form is required for the portfolio that serves as the final exam for the degree. After this form is processed by Graduate School staff, you will receive an e-mail in June from the Graduate School with information about graduation.
A program of study is to have been submitted and on file with the Graduate School. The program of study must be on file before the final exam form can be submitted to the Graduate School. If you have not completed this, please contact Pam as soon as possible.
In addition, it is required that you be enrolled during the semester in which you complete degree requirements.
