Students planning to complete the requirements for the Master in Science in Academic Advising in Spring 2021 should follow the steps below:
1) E-mail Pam McGlynn
Notify me that you plan to graduate the end of the Spring 2021 semester. Deadline February 8, 2021
I will submit Approval to Schedule Final Exam forms for all students that notify me 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. The Canvas course to submit the final project is NOT a credit course. It has no work, except to submit the final project.
4) Submit Academic Advising Final Project to K-State Online-Canvas Course by March 8, 2021.
A K-State Online course will be created for submitting final projects. Pam McGlynn will manually add students to the course that notify her they plan to graduate.
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.
A 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.
