Students may start their graduate program during the summer preceding the fall semester. This schedule may be desirable for students doing thesis research projects because the summer is a good time to start work on research. Students who begin graduate school in the summer prior to the start of the Internship Program could complete their program a semester earlier than shown. Students wishing to consider this possibility should contact their advisor as soon as they receive notification of acceptance to graduate school.
