The necessary steps and a recommended timetable for completion of an M.S. degree are included on the certification check list.

Failure to follow these procedures may result in students not making satisfactory progress toward their degree.
- Graduate School requirements
An M.S. candidate who has completed graduate level course work at another institution may request from their advisory committee that this work be used to fulfill some of the WRM program requirements. This request is usually made at the time of certification and should be discussed with the advisor and committee members as soon as possible. See the certification checklist for further details.
