Non-thesis MS Paperwork and Forms

As you progress through your education at IIT, you will be required to fill out a number of forms. These help to track said progress by allowing the university to keep accurate records of when you reach milestones. This page is designed to help you determine what to complete when. All university forms are available online and Psychology (non-linked) forms are available in the office.

Year 1

IMMUNIZATION RECORD

The State of Illinois requires all students (born after January 1, 1957) at institutions of higher education to prove immunity to certain diseases. This is shown through either vaccination or proof of past illness. The Immunization Record must be filled out by a medical provider and returned to the Student Health Center before registering for the first semester.

COURSE TRANSFER FORM

If you have taken any graduate courses at other schools, you might be able to apply them to your IIT degree. This requires approval from a faculty member (generally a professor who teaches the course you wish to transfer) and the program¹s director. These forms can be picked up in the office.

401 - PROGRAM OF STUDY

By the end of your first semester, you must complete a Program of Study 401 form. This will document all required courses and any course credit that is transferred from other universities. It will also provide you with a "road map" for your studies. Your 401 should be filled out in consultation with your advisor. If necessary, it can later be modified using a Change of Program (406 form).

Year 2

527 - APPLICATION FOR GRADUATION

The Application for Graduation 527 Form printable version or editable pdf version (download, save, & email to cahill@iit.edu) must be filled out and submitted to the Graduate College (MB 110). The graduation fee will automatically be added to your account. You are the only person who needs to sign this form. This must be done by the Graduation Application Deadline; please check the Academic Calendar, as the date changes every semester.

GALVIN LIBRARY SUMMER PRIVILEGE FORM

406 - CHANGE IN THE PROGRAM OF STUDY

In order to graduate, your Program of Study (set using the 401 form) must match the courses actually taken. The Change in the Program of Study 406 form is used to adjust your Program of Study. It allows you to change planned courses to account for availability, shift in interest, and the like. The form must be signed by your advisor, the Director of Psychology, and the Dean of the Graduate College.

216 - LEAVE OF ABSENCE

You should be registered for every (Fall/Spring) semester until graduation. If you will not be registered for any reason, you will need to apply for a Leave of Absence 216 form of up to one year. The form must be signed by your advisor, the Director of Psychology, and the Dean of the Graduate College. Please note that a leave does not extend the six-year time limit for degree completion.
