Procedures for Fall 2020 Graduation

Students planning to complete the requirements for the Master in Science in Academic Advising in Fall 2020 should follow these steps.

1) E-mail Pam McGlynn 
Notify Pam McGlynn that you plan to graduate the end of the Fall 2020 semester. Deadline September 1, 2020

Pam will submit Approval to Schedule Final Exam forms for all students that notify her they plan to graduate.

2) Submit the graduation application
All candidates for master’s degrees must submit the graduation application via the student center in KSIS before the Final Exam form is processed. The graduation application will add students to the list of candidates for degree completion as well as update the degree/diploma name and mailing address. This is a graduation requirement by the Graduate School. 

In order to submit the graduation application you must log into KSIS and go to “Academics” in the “Student Center”. Open the “Other Academic” list box and click “Apply for Graduation” and then click go (>>) and complete the online application. Step by step instructions on applying for graduation are available in KSIS Help at the following link: http://www.k-state.edu/isis/help/students/stuGraduationApply.html

3) Enroll in a credit course at K-State
It is required that students be enrolled during the semester in which they complete degree requirements, i.e. coursework and final project. If you have completed all required coursework, there is a one credit course available, so you can be officially enrolled. Contact Pam McGlynn for details.

4) Submit Academic Advising Final Project to K-State Online-Canvas Course by October 8, 2020.
A K-State Online course will be created for submitting final projects. Pam McGlynn will manually add students to the course.

The final project is the culminating activity for the graduate program and will be evaluated by your program committee. Please view the final project pages on the website for more information (https://academicadvising.wordpress.com/final-project/).

The final project is expected to be a high quality, graduate document developed during the program. Please contact your advisor or Pam McGlynn if you have questions about the academic advising final project.

Program of Study is to have been submitted and on file with the Graduate School. All Master’s students should have a Program of Study on file after the completion of nine credits. If you do not have an approved program of study, please contact Pam McGlynn as soon as possible.

Programs of Study

The Graduate School requires an approved program of study after the completion of nine credits (three courses) in the MS in Academic Advising program.

The Program of Study lists the courses you intend to take to complete the requirements of the degree. It will not list when you will take the courses. 

Which elective course do you plan to take? 

  1. EDCEP 812 – History and Philosophy of Higher Education – Fall
  2. EDCEP 839 – Assessment of Academic Advising – Spring
  3. EDCEP 864 – Current Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics – Summer

Your advisor (found in KSIS) is the major professor on your supervisory committee. Two additional faculty will serve on your committee. The committee reviews your final project. Do you have a preference for which professors serve on your committee? The following graduate faculty are available to serve on committees: 

     · Doris Carroll 
     · Christy Craft 
     · Judy Hughey 
     · Ken Hughey 
     · Marilyn Kaff 
     · Charlie Nutt
· Lisa Rubin
     · Dan Wilcox

When you are ready, please send an email with your elective and committee members choices to Pam McGlynn.

I will generate your Program of Study through our new electronic form system. It will be electronically signed by the faculty on your committee and submitted to the Graduate School for Approval. Once it is approved you will receive an email from the Graduate School. Please do not fill out the form yourself. As a department we have decided that I will do the forms for all MS in Academic Advising students.
