If you are planning to complete the requirements for the Master’s in Academic Advising, please pay attention to the procedures below.
Please e-mail Pam McGlynn, our program assistant, to let her know you are planning to complete degree requirements at the end of the spring semester. She will use this list to distribute additional information to potential graduates.
First, the Approval to Schedule Final Exam form it to be submitted to Pam McGlynn by January 25, 2012. 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. 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 the Approval to Schedule Final Exam form is processed by Graduate School staff, you will receive an e-mail with information about graduation, including information on the iSIS Graduation application which the Graduate School requires students to complete by March 1, 2012.
The second activity is to submit your academic advising portfolio via drop box on K-State Online by March 15, 2012. A K-State Online course will be created for this purpose and students that notify Pam will be on the roster. The electronic portfolio is the culminating activity for the program and will be evaluated by your program committee. A Word file of the portfolio requirements is attached to this e-mail. The portfolio is expected to be a high quality, graduate document developed during the program. Please contact your advisor or Dr. Ken Hughey (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have questions about the academic advising portfolio.
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.
