Individualized Degree Program-Announcements and Deadlines
PROPOSAL AND GRADUATION DUE DATES:
IDP proposals usually should be submitted at least one year prior to graduation. The earlier you develop your proposal, the more choices you have! And please remember, there is a requirement that you have hours left to complete within your IDP program when the proposal is signed by the department chair. The number varies according to the IDP program you choose: 21 for an IDP extended major, 15 for an IDP major, and 6 for an IDP minor. (Refer to the guidelines for other specific requirements for each program.)
We strongly encourage early advising and submission of IDP proposals. Until your IDP proposal is submitted and fully approved by faculty, chair, and dean, we cannot ensure that you are on track to graduate.
The following deadlines for submitting completed IDP proposals to our office apply:
FALL 2012 graduates: April 23, 2012.
SPRING 2013 graduates: October 22, 2012.
SUMMER 2013 graduates: March 18, 2013.
The deadlines are timed so that you will receive a CAPP report in time to correct any unforeseen difficulties when you register for your final semester. To be considered complete at the time you submit your proposal to our office, the proposal should be signed by your faculty mentor and chair. Remember, your Center advisor, the dean and the director will still need to review your proposal after it is submitted. Proposals received after the deadline will be considered on a case by case basis.
Proposals will NOT be accepted after the last day of the semester prior to the semester in which you intend to graduate. Students submitting a proposal after the end of the semester will have their official graduation date delayed by one semester. Please consult carefully with your IDP advisor to be sure that you submit your proposal in a timely fashion.
PLEASE NOTE: In addition to submitting your signed IDP proposal to our office, candidates for graduation must apply to graduate in the registrar's office. See the Registrar's web site or visit their office in the new Student Success Building for dates.
