FABE Graduate Program Course Credit Requirements Changed

On September 6, 2019, the FABE Graduate Faculty approved the change in the minimum number of course credits required for the MS program from 20 to 15; and the minimum course requirements for the Ph.D. program from 30 to 20.  

Thus, a student going from a BS to a Ph.D. directly would require 35 credits total.

These changes come into effect immediately. If a student already has exceeded these credits, there is no problem. However, if they have not yet met their credit hour requirements, these new requirements would apply to them.

A revised Graduate Program Handbook will soon be available. Please use it for your future reference.
