Progress and Requirements


Degree-seeking graduate students and students completing graduate certificate programs are expected to make satisfactory progress toward their degree or certificate in a timely manner (10-year time limit). Some departments take action to dismiss students who absent themselves for periods of a year or more.

Demonstrated suitability for professional practice, as determined by faculty, is also a consideration for remaining in good standing in graduate programs leading to advanced certificates or other endorsements indicating advanced professional practice or achievement.

Students who complete graduate degrees at Wichita State University are transferred to nondegree, Category A, status in the academic field of their graduate degree which allows continued enrollment for graduate credit at WSU. Should such students desire to undertake a new academic program or change advising areas, a new application for admission to the desired area of study and application fee must be filed with the Graduate School office.
