Screen shot from the system showing the degree selection screen

Basic Information - Edit Name

By clicking the "Edit my name as it appears in the header" link, you'll be able to modify your name as it appears in the header. The information that is used in the header is loaded from the central Mizzou database when you first log in. If you go by a nickname, maiden name, or some other name, you can edit that in the form that appears after clicking the link.

After editing your name and/or department, be sure to click the "Save" button.

Basic Information - Degrees, Minors or Certificates

The first form you'll need to complete is the "Degrees, Minors and Certificates" form. Click the "Add Degree" button to select your degree program from a dropdown list. Once you have selected the degree, minor or certificate you are enrolled in, click the "Save" button. You will then see a list of any degrees you have previously selected. You may add another degree, minor, or certificate by clicking the "Add Degree" button.

If your selected degree program has different emphasis areas, you may be asked to select an emphasis area from another dropdown menu. The emphasis area will be stored along with the degree you selected.

You may also delete a degree, minor or certificate that you have already selected by clicking the "Delete" button adjacent to that degree listing. If you accidentally delete a degree program, you can always add it right back by clicking the "Add Degree" button.

Basic Information - Contact Information

You can add or edit your contact information by clicking the "Edit" button in the "Contact Information" box. You'll be presented with several fields you can use to list your contact information. Any information you list here will be available to your adviser and degree program leaders. Be sure to click the "Save" button after editing any fields.

Basic Information - Academic Information

You can add or edit your academic information - your student number, the date of your entry into your graduate program, and your anticipated graduation date - by clicking the "Edit" button in the "Academic Information" box. You can always come back and change your anticipated graduation date - you're asked to include so your adviser has an idea of when you might be finishing up. Be sure to click the "Save" button after editing any fields.

Basic Information - Committee Members

You can add members of your committee to your committee member list by clicking the "Add Committee Member" button. You'll then be presented with a form where you can add the name of the committee member you would like to add. You can also select the position that person holds on your committee - either Committee chair, member, or outside member. Be sure to click the "Save" button after typing the name of your committee member and selecting the position.

You can delete members of your committee list by clicking the "Delete" button adjacent to each member's name. You cannot edit a committee member - if you make a mistake, just delete the member and add the correct member again.
