Instructions for Registering:

-Find out what you have taken and what you have left to take.

Refer to MyMocs Degree, a web-based tool to help monitor progress towards graduation. It combines degree requirements and the coursework completed in an easy-to-read evaluation that allows students to view their progress toward a degree.  (NOTE: Business graduate students' prerequisite/background requirements won't show up on My MocsDegree as needed classes but will appear once those classes have been taken. If you are unsure of your program prerequisites, contact your advisor.)

To access MyMocs Degree follow the instructions below.

1.Go to MyMocsNet.

2.Enter your UTCID & Password.

3.Students go to the ‘Academics’ tab –Located in middle of page.

Advising holds will be removed for all currently enrolled MAcc students prior to the first day of priority registration.

Degree Requirements

Below are a few things to keep in mind when working toward your graduate business degree.

You must maintain a 3.0 GPA on all courses taken for graduate credit or you will be put on academic probation and are in danger of being dismissed from the graduate program.

  • No credits earned with grades below C will be accepted for graduate degree requirements.
  • However, grades of D and F are computed into the graduate grade point average.
  • When courses are repeated, all grades are included in computing the graduate grade point average.
  • No grade below a B will be accepted for transfer credit.
  • Students who earn 3 or more grades of C or below in graduate level courses will be dismissed from the MSDA program.

The time limit for fulfilling the requirements for a master’s degree is six years. All courses included on the Program of Study must be current at the time of completion of the degree. An extension of time form, available on the Graduate School Web site, can be used to request a one‐time, one‐year extension. The request must be signed by your advisor on behalf of the COB  and submitted to the Office of the Graduate School for final approval.
