All graduate students in the MSU College of Engineering are required to submit an annual report each year, regardless of when they started graduate studies (note that this is a change from previous years, when annual reports were not required until students had completed 9 graduate credits.) As part of this report, students will report their progress during the previous year, review their academic and professional goals, and communicate with their adviser(s) about their plans and progress toward degree completion. Students who do not complete the annual reporting process will have a hold placed on their accounts.
