This information is intended for students planning to complete the requirements for the MS in Academic Advising this Fall 2011. If you are not planning to complete requirements this fall, it is recommended you review this information to be familiar with the process.
Please e-mail Pam McGlynn, our program assistant, to let her know you are planning to complete degree requirements at the end of the fall semester.
First, if you are planning to complete the master’s degree this fall, your academic advising portfolio is to be submitted via drop box on K-State Online by October 15, 2011. Specific directions will be sent at a later time. The electronic portfolio is the culminating activity for the program and will be evaluated by your program committee. The portfolio is expected to be a high quality, graduate document developed during the program. The portfolio requirements are available on the Resources Page of the blog. 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 is available on the Resources Page of the blog.) to Pam McGlynn by September 1, 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 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.
