New students are eligible to create a NetID upon accepting your admissions offer. The NetID creation process can take several days to complete and activate, so do not delay in establishing a NetID. The Graduate School will provide information on establishing your NetID and supply your personal access code (PAC), needed to complete that process.
CFRM 101 & 102
Access to the course Canvas site is limited to registered students via their UW NetID. It can take several days for you to gain access to Canvas once registered, so it is important that you register at least one week (for new students, two weeks) before the start of each quarter.
Support for Panopto problems is provided via UW-IT. Available 24/7, you can contact UW-IT via the methods listed here.
Satisfactory Performance and Progress
The Graduate School rules regarding satisfactory progress are detailed in Graduate School Memorandum No. 16. The Department of Applied Mathematics follows these recommended guidelines of the Graduate School including an initial warning, followed by a maximum of three quarters of probation and one quarter of final probation, then ultimately being dropped from the program.
Expected Academic Workload
The online Master’s program allows students to enroll part-time or full-time. Part-time students will be able to finish the degree requirements in three years, on average, when taking one course each quarter.
Students who do not intend to register for a quarter must seek approved academic leave in order to maintain a student status. Students who do not maintain active student status through course registration or an approved leave request need to request reinstatement to rejoin the MS program. Reinstatement is at the discretion of the CFRM program. Students approved for reinstatement are required to follow degree requirements active at time of reinstatement, which could be different from requirements in place at time of initial admittance. Please contact the CFRM Graduate Program Advisor regarding the potential impact on completed and remaining credits.
