1.

Consult a requested or assigned temporary advisor regarding enrollment during the first semester of classes.  Students admitted for the fall term should enroll in one credit hour of AGED 5101.

2.

Select a graduate committee of three graduate faculty (consisting of at least two members of the Agricultural Education, Communications and Leadership graduate faculty, one of whom will serve as committee chair), and develop a plan of study.

3.

Submit a plan of study to the Graduate College on line prior to completing the 17th credit hour of enrollment (which should include two of the five core courses in agricultural education).  This plan of study includes the courses you plan to take during your advanced degree program.  You will have an opportunity to revise it at the beginning of the semester you graduate.

4.

All students must indicate on their plans of study whether or not they have completed Responsible Conduct of Research RCR) requirements.  These requirements are completed as an on-line tutorial (https://www.citiprogram.org) during enrollment in AGED 5101.   A copy of your completion report will be placed in your departmental academic file located in 464 Agricultural Hall.

5.

All students must indicate on their plans of study whether or not their research will involve human subjects.  This requirement also involves the completion of an on-line tutorial (https://www.citiprogram.org).  When human subjects are to be used, approval must be received from the Office of University Research Compliance prior to the beginning of the research.  Check out the URC website http://compliance.vpr.okstate.edu/ and mail documents to the Office of University Research Compliance, 219 Cordell North, Stillwater, OK 74078-1038.  Allow sufficient time to receive this approval.

6.

At the beginning of your final semester, submit a revised plan of study on line (if needed) and a graduation clearance form to the Graduate College.  Once the Graduate College receives this form(s), you will be cleared for on-line submission of your diploma application through the Registrar’s Office.

7.

As you are completing the creative component, schedule a presentation of your project with your committee before the end of the semester.  If you are on campus, schedule your presentation so that other graduate students may attend.
