School administers numerous
programs of study leading to graduate degrees.
Each of these areas has a graduate coordinator who reviews the applications

in planning a program of study. In the areas where a thesis is a part
of the degree requirement, a thesis committee is also assigned to,
or selected with the consent of the advisor and the committee members,
student to advise the student and monitor the progress of the thesis.

enrolled students. The registrar distributes the information to the
appropriate department approximately four weeks before preregistration
is to begin. Closer to the actual preregistration time, the registrar
distributes the "Authorization to Sealine," which is given
