Upon acceptance into the Research Track, a research track graduation plan will be created, approved and signed before the plan is forwarded to the official files stored in the Registrar’s Office. Part of the plan will include courses (other than Research courses) that can be taken as independent study so that additional release time in each quarter is available for pursuing research.
