Grad students: Program of study questions?
« on: November 25, 2009, 10:30:45 am »
I'm going through my second Program of Study right now and watching other people go through this too.  I wish I could provide a tutorial for this, but since even I don't understand how this crap works, I'm going to list a bunch of questions as they come up and hope maybe someone has some answers eventually.  If you're a grad student at UND please post up your questions; maybe we can forward the whole list to the graduate school and get some answers.

- Can I take an undergraduate course and get graduate credit for it?

- Can I take an undergraduate course and not get graduate credit for it but still have it on my Program of Study and covered by my tuition waiver?

- How many research or directed studies credits can I take a semester?

- Who determines how many credits of tuition waiver I get?

- How many credits can I transfer from my Master's Program of Study?

- How many transferred credits can be research, directed studies, or thesis credits?

- When does my Program of Study have to be in?  Will I be back-billed for classes I took before I submitted my Program of Study that don't count for graduate credit?

- Other universities seem to not have a minimum-credit requirement for graduate students and will award degrees based on the Program of Study put together by the student's committee and approved by the department.  Why does UND have a minimum-credit requirement for graduation?

- When do I have to apply for a summer tuition waiver?

You guys need an active Grad Student Association.  If I was at UND I would be able to help you out, but I only have that info for the school to the south...  Sorry

And I am betting some of those will vary by program.
