Plan of Study

By the end of the first semester, but no later than the completion of 12 credit hours, graduate students must submit to the College of Graduate Studies a Plan of Study approved and signed by the student, graduate advisor, department chair or program director, and the associate dean of the college (or designee). The Plan of Study is a listing of courses and other requirements that a student must complete to fulfill the minimum requirements of the graduate degree program. The College of Graduate Studies checks the student’s record against the Plan of Study to verify eligibility for graduation.  The Plan of Study forms are available on the College of Graduate Studies' web-site and the Graduate tab of the myUT portal, and should be submitted to Please note: at this time the self-service DAR in the portal is only accurate for undergraduates.
