This page provides information for Curriculum & Instruction faculty as a reference for graduate student advising. Students who are seeking advising information should view the Current Student Resources page and contact their faculty advisor.
Look up Student Information:
To get information on your students’ courses,
degree evaluations, etc. use WyoWeb.
To retrieve student information:
- Go to the Faculty tab
- In the box on the right labeled “Banner
Self-Service”, click on “Faculty and Advisors” folder
- Click “Student Information Menu” subfolder
- You now get a list of all the different type of
information you can look up about your students – including degree evaluations
- Your graduate advisees should be listed with
your undergraduates. It would be best to
email both around advising week. Ideally
we’d like graduate students to be registering right away so courses don’t get
canceled for low enrollment later.
Please encourage them to do so.
If you know you have an advisee, but don’t see
them on your list, email the C&I Office Associate and they will get you
listed as their advisor in the system.
Furthermore, if you have individuals listed who are no longer your
current advisees, please also email this to the Office Associate so they can be
removed from your list in the system.
Forms for Current Students:
Forms (and some direction on filling them out) can
be found on the C&I website under the Current Student Resources page. Please let your students know about
it. If you think of anything that should be on the
site for students, let the Office Associate know.
There are several major forms that students are
required to fill out in the process of their graduate studies.
For ALL forms, the options for the MA & EdD
students should be filled out as:
Dept/Program: Curriculum & Instruction
Option: Curriculum & Instruction
For all PhD forms:
Dept/Program: Curriculum & Instruction
Major: Curriculum & Instruction
Option: Curriculum Studies, Science Education,
Mathematics Education, or Literacy Education as applicable.
of Study - Be sure students do the following
- Use the appropriate program information in
Dept/Program, Major, and Option (see above)
- Include all core courses
- List any courses prior to admission to the
graduate program program in Section 2
- includes post-bac courses taken for MAs and
Master’s courses taken for doc students
- Post-bac students have taken 12 hours which
count toward their master’s curriculum.
Don’t use the regular MA sheet to determine their course work. They have a specific sheet, which is on the
website. Basically, their post bac
courses count toward the assessment class and all but one emphasis elective.
- Don’t list any courses they took at UW while
they were in undergraduate status (you can tell by looking at their transcripts
on WyoWeb what level they were when they earned a course)
- Don’t list more than 12 credits in section 2 (if
they wish to do so, they must fill out a petition)
- Total hours add up to minimum that meets program requirement
- MA is 32
- PhD & EdD are ~81 (includes 30 hours of
Master’s if applicable, programs may vary)
- Have all their committee members’ names typed
into the signature area (this is used for their initial committee assignment and
replaces the committee assignment form)
- Sign the form
- All levels require a student signature (email
approval can substitute)
- MA require only chair signature; Doc require all
- To make changes to the program of study after it
is submitted, the committee chair should email the appropriate degree analyst
in the registrar’s office and cc the C&I office associate.
- There is a max of 6 credits earnable in EDCI
5890 Directed Pro Study (independent study)
of Final Exam – to be completed after the thesis/dissertation defense or
Plan B presentation.
- Must be signed by all committee members, the
C&I Head, and the Associate Dean.
- For a student to graduate in a given semester,
this form must be received, completely and correctly filled out, by the final day of classes of
Graduation Date form
- Must be completed by student and submitted to
the Registrar no later than the final day of classes in the semester the
student wishes to graduate. However, it
is strongly recommended that the student submit it at the beginning of the
semester, so any paperwork issues can be addressed and graduation will not be
delayed. Submitting on the final day of
class does NOT guarantee graduation.
- If a student delays their graduation, a new
anticipated graduation date form must be submitted for the new expected
semester of graduation.
Committee Assignment – committee assignments
are done directly from program of study forms.
Committee assignment forms are only necessary for committee changes. MA students will also still fill them out for participation in EDCI 5400 Midpoint Portfolio.
Other required petitions and forms that may arise
are posted on the current student resources tab or the Registrar's site for graduate student forms (link can be found on current student resources tab).
- All MA and EdD students are Outreach and
shouldn't need perc numbers. If a
student says they need one, let the Office Associate know so they can have the
student’s status updated.
- Percs can be found for your advisees through
WyoWeb or by the Office Associate.
- Students who are taking a semester off should
enroll for an hour of continuing registration (not too expensive) to maintain
their library and email access.
- If students go 2+ semesters without enrolling at
all, they will need to re-apply to the University through the admissions online
process to be able to resume taking classes.
- If students are signing up for restricted
enrollment courses, they need to have the instructor or their advisor (for
independent studies) email the Office Associate with their approval and the
course and section and student’s W# to get an override.
- Students doing independent studies (like EDCI
5890 Directed Professional Study) should fill out the Individual Study Course
Form (found on the Current student resources page) with their instructor and
turn it in to the Office Associate for an override.
