II. General Regulations
Establishment of Program
After examining the student's academic record, the committee will arrange a program appropriate for the degree. The committee will give due consideration to relevant courses passed by the student at any recognized university or college and any necessary placement examinations taken. The program will include prescribed studies on the basis of which the candidate's final standing will be determined. It may include additional courses either chosen by the student or specified by the committee. For master's degrees by course work, OCGS by-laws permit a maximum of 1/3 of the credits to be taken from senior undergraduate courses; however individual programs may require a higher proportion of graduate courses. The program established by the advisory committee must be submitted for approval to the department graduate coordinator no later than the beginning of the student's third semester.
