Q. I am taking classes in a graduate degree program at a Fitchburg State University Extended Campus site but I haven't been accepted yet. Is this OK?


A. You can take up to twelve graduate credits at Fitchburg State prior to matriculation. You will need an advisor's approval to apply them to your major. The best thing to do is to get all your paperwork into the Office of Admissions as soon as possible. After twelve credits, any additional Fitchburg State University course taken prior to matriculation will require an academic waiver in order for it to apply toward your degree.

Q. The graduate courses I have taken with Fitchburg State University have a PDEV or PDMT prefix and a six-thousand level number. Do these courses apply toward a degree?


A. Most majors will allow two PDEV/PDMT-six-thousand-level courses to apply toward the degree; HOWEVER, all courses outside of your plan of study will require approval of your Academic Advisor. It would be wise to meet with him/her as soon as possible to determine how or if these courses will apply.

Q. What is a cohort program?


A. A cohort program is a program that has been designed for a specific group of students--often at an off-campus location. These programs offer sequential courses leading to a degree. An identified group or "cohort" follow a specific plan of study and a very specific time schedule, and commit to completing the degree requirements together.

Q. How are cohort programs different from other degree programs


A. If you are part of a cohort you will take classes with the same people for the period of your degree. Your courses will usually be provided "when and where" you need them. Often you will receive onsite advising.

Q. How are cohort programs the same as other programs?


A. Cohort programs have the same admissions standards and degree requirements as other programs. It is your responsibility to understand those requirements and to comply with the academic policies and procedures of the University.

Q. How will I know who my advisor is?


A. Academic Advisors are assigned at the time of matriculation. Your letter of acceptance will include information for contacting him/her. If you have questions before then, you can view our Find your Advisor web page.

Q. What is the role of the Extended Campus Programs Center?


A. We are here to help. If we can't answer your question or resolve your problem we can usually point you to someone who can. We are always happy to hear from you!
