To graduate, all students must apply online in MyCUInfo at the beginning of the semester in which they plan to graduate. Master’s students must also submit a Candidacy Application for an Advanced Degree at this time. Students should also contact Matt Laszewski to go over the requirements.
PhD students who have their research or creative work accepted for presentation at a conference or comparable venue may request up to $500 ($1,000 for international travel) in CMCI travel funds during an academic year. Students should submit their travel requests to their department’s Director of Graduate Studies. Once the DGS approves the request, Matt Laszewski will initiate the scholarship award process. If the student has an outstanding student account balance, any awards will first go towards paying that balance. The remainder will be disbursed as a direct deposit into the account set up for assistantship pay.
Comprehensive exam procedures vary by department. Students should work with their advisor and Director of Graduate Studies in preparing for the exam. Students should also contact Matt Laszewski to go over the requirements.
Students must submit an Exam Report to the department at least three weeks before the comprehensive exams. View doctoral and master’s exam reports »
The form should include the names and departments of your committee members and should be approved by your Director of Graduate Studies and submitted to Matt Laszewski for graduate school approval. Digital copies are preferred. The approved form will be signed by your committee members at the defense.

Please contact Matt Laszewski to get signed up for controlled enrollment courses. Some departments require additional paperwork, so check with your advisor/instructor to see if anything else is needed. For independent studies, the student and the instructor need to agree in advance on the expectations and method(s) of evaluation for the semester’s work.
