The program proposal is an outline of the student's anticipated
progression through the Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology. All students receive a program proposal
form, including applications for waivers of courses and for transfer of
course credits, during the summer following admission. Advanced-level
students meet with an adviser during their first semester to initiate their
individual program proposal. Upon approval of all waivers by course
instructors and approval by the adviser, the proposal is sent for
review and approval to the department chair. Students entering at
the beginning level complete the program proposal during the second semester of their second year.
Following this approval, the
student's program may not be materially affected by modifications in
staff personnel, program, or school policy. Minor adjustments,
reflecting changes in the student's interests and needs, are
accomplished through requests initiated with and approved by the
student's adviser and department chair.
