Plan of Study

As a graduate student you must submit a Plan of Study by the time you have enrolled for 50% of the minimum credit hours required towards your degree. Your Plan of Study (POS) contains a list of courses and the culminating experience which maps the requirements for your degree completion. It serves as a guide as to what items you have to complete.  The great news is that the POS is submitted and revised electronically via our interactive POS system (iPOS).   It is important that this is completed in a timely fashion, as the failure to do so will result in a hold disabling the ability to enroll in further courses.

The iPOS link can be found when you log into myASU, and view the area labeled "My Programs and Degree Programs".

Important areas to note:

  • You may review your individual program requirements by visiting specific degree pages.
  • A minimum of 30 credit hours of graduate level coursework is required on your iPOS, though your program may require more. 
  • Please ensure that you have included your culminating experience (this may be in the form of a capstone course). 
  • You will recieve an email when your Plan of Study recieves final approval.
