Students who have been offered a “provisional admission” to the program must fulfill certain requirements in order to remain in the program. If the provisions are not met in the established timeframe, the student will be dismissed from the program automatically by the ASU Graduate College. Students can view the conditions of their admission on the MyASU page.
After the first semester in the program is completed, student should submit an IPOS (Plan of Study) through the MyASU page (“My Programs”) section. The IPOS details the courses the student will take to complete the degree. The IPOS can be changed if course selections change in the future. An IPOS must be submitted, reviewed by the unit and faculty, and approved no later than halfway through the program.
Faculty committee on the IPOS:
Please add Jeffrey Kubiak and Alicia Ellis both as co-chairs
Once submitted, your IPOS will be reviewed by the Graduate Coordinator and faculty director. If changes need to be made, your IPOS will be returned to you for revisions. Please be sure to review the course schedule and projected future course offerings to select courses.
The IPOS can be edited and changed if your course selections change over time. If a change in registration occurs, a flag will appear on the MyASU page indicating that an IPOS change is required. Please see the “My Programs” tab on your MyASU page for more information.
Courses are generally offered in the same terms each semester. Please see the ASU Class Search for a guide for courses that are offered in spring, summer, and fall. Not all courses are offered each semester.
Starting Spring 2023, GSC 550 (Capstone) will be offered in the “C” session (full semester) each semester.
Students admitted for a summer term must be enrolled in at least one graduate credit in the term of admission. Future summer semester enrollment will be optional. Summer enrollment is optional for continuous registration purposes, but all graduate students must be enrolled in at least one graduate credit in both fall and spring semesters in either A or B sessions (or both) unless on an approved leave of absence.
If students are receiving any sort of benefit or aid that requires enrollment in a specific number of credits in a given semester, please confirm the credit requirements of the award to stay in compliance.
GSC 561-563 will be offered throughout the spring, summer and fall semesters but may not be offered each semester
GSC 560 is a prerequisite for GSC 563. GSC 560-562 can be taken in any order, but it is recommended for students to complete 560 first in the sequence, if possible.
GSC 563 is reserved for students in the cyber concentration only.
Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in all GPA’s (IPOS GPA, Overall Graduate GPA, and Cumulative GPA).
Student who fall below a 3.0 in any of these three areas may be placed on academic probation or dismissed from the program. Students should contact the academic advisor and program faculty if any of the GPA’s fall below a 3.0 in a given semester and develop a plan to improve academic performance.
Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to the deadlines in the ASU Academic Calendar. Please specifically be aware of add/drop deadlines.
