Toxicology Ph.D./M.S. Program of Study Checklist

Page

The Program of Study and Committee form (found in ACCESS PLUS) should reflect all courses you are planning to take to meet the course requirements for an M.S. or Ph.D. in Toxicology.

POSC WORKSHEET for Course Discussion with your committee. Coursework to complete your degree MUST be discussed with all of your committee members PRIOR to submitting a POSC on-line in ACCESS PLUS

Use the comments section on the POSC to indicate information on why a required course is not listed on your POSC.

The Major Professor, committee members, and Chair of the program will likely reject the POSC if all required coursework is not listed or if there is not a satisfactory explanation for why coursework is not listed.

The POSC is required by the end of the first year in your permanent lab. It is HIGHLY recommended that M.S. students complete the POSC at the beginning of their 2nd semester to avoid additional time needed to complete their degree since some important tox courses are offered every other year.
