Graduate Forms and Guidelines
For the latest course schedules and locations, please check OASIS.
For important forms from the Office of Graduate Studies, including Thesis and Dissertation Certificate of Approval, Admission to Candidacy, and Course Transfer forms, refer to the Office of Graduate Studies forms page.
For important forms from the Office of the Registrar including Final Exam Matrix, Audit form, and Late Registration Fee Waiver Form refer to the Registrar's form page.
MS students in their first semester must only take courses from their major. MS students can request a permit to take ONE course from outside of their major but must wait until at least their second semester to do this.
Graduate students taking a minimum of nine (9) hours toward their degree in the fall or spring semester or taking a minimum of six (6) hours in the summer semester, will be classified as full-time students for academic purposes. CSE Graduate students may not take more than twelve (12) graduate hours per semester without approval from the Department.
Seats in classes are limited, so students should not over-register for classes they
do not plan to take. This unnecessarily takes seats away from other students. Students
must finalize their schedules by the end of add/drop week.
