How Will Continuing Students be Affected by the New Degree Requirements?
Gallatin has introduced revised degree requirements for students entering the program in Summer 2013 and later. Continuing students will not be subject to the new requirements. But depending on when you started the program and what requirements you have completed, you may be impacted by the changes.
If you will defend by Spring 2014, you will not be affected. If you plan to defend in Summer 2014 or later, you may be affected.
If you are a continuing student who will defend in Summer 2014 or later, please continue reading to learn more about your options.
