Students who have been offered a “provisional admission” to the program must fulfill certain requirements in order to remain in the program. If the provisions are not met in the established timeframe, the student will be dismissed from the program automatically by the ASU Graduate College. Students can view the conditions of their admission on the MyASU page.
After the first semester in the program is completed, student should submit an IPOS (Plan of Study) through the MyASU page (“My Programs”) section. The IPOS details the courses the student will take to complete the degree. The IPOS can be changed if course selections change in the future. An IPOS must be submitted, reviewed by the unit and faculty, and approved no later than halfway through the program.
Faculty committee on the IPOS:
Please add: Jeffrey Kubiak and Daniel Rothenberg
Once submitted, your IPOS will be reviewed by the Graduate Coordinator and faculty director. If changes need to be made, your IPOS will be returned to you for revisions. Please be sure to review the course schedule and projected future course offerings to select courses.
The IPOS can be edited and changed if your course selections change over time. If a change in registration occurs, a flag will appear on the MyASU page indicating that an IPOS change is required. Please see the “My Programs” tab on your MyASU page for more information.

Summer enrollment is optional for continuous registration purposes, but all graduate students must be enrolled in at least one graduate credit in both fall and spring semesters in either A or B sessions (or both).
If students are receiving any sort of benefit or aid that requires enrollment in a specific number of credits in a given semester, please confirm the credit requirements of the award to stay in compliance.
The remaining cyber courses will be offered 1-2 times each calendar year in the “A” session. It is recommended to enroll in GSC 560 first, if possible, as a foundational course in the sequence. Courses 561-563 can be taken in any order. It is recommended that students in the cybersecurity concentration enroll in the cybersecurity courses as soon as they are available, and as schedules allow.
A limited number of seats may be available for MAGS students (not enrolled in the cybersecurity concentration) for GSC 560. Please see “reserved groups” section of course in ASU Class Search for details on available seats. GSC 561-563 will be reserved for cyber concentration students only at this time.
Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in all GPA’s (IPOS GPA, Overall Graduate GPA, and Cumulative GPA).
Student who fall below a 3.0 in any of these three areas may be placed on academic probation or dismissed from the program. Students should contact the academic advisor and program faculty if any of the GPA’s fall below a 3.0 in a given semester and develop a plan to improve academic performance.
Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to the deadlines in the ASU Academic Calendar. Please specifically be aware of add/drop deadlines.
