MDA/CDA Students - Course Plan Change Request Form

Submit this form to request a thesis extension.

  • MDA and CDA students can choose to move from two to one course per semester lengthening their course of study to 3 or 4 years for the MDA and 2 years for the CDA. If the change is made during the semester but before week 8, students will receive a prorated reimbursement for the course that they dropped (see student handbook).
  • Students are required to meet with the Director of Graduate Programs to discuss the course plan change and the courses they will take each semester given this change.
