Memorandum of Courses

The Memorandum of Courses must be

  • filed before the student has received grades (letter grades, no reports or incompletes) in more than one-half of the prescribed program; and
  • approved by the student’s adviser, the departmental or area Graduate Committee, a faculty member of the Graduate Committee in the student’s minor, and by the Dean of Graduate Studies.
A student may NOT file a Memorandum of Courses and graduate in the same semester or summer session. See Master's Degree Forms and Deadlines for further information.

Masters students have ten years from the first course listed on the memorandum of courses to complete the degree. Courses exceeding the ten-year limit may not be used toward a master’s degree.
