Florida Tech maintains a listing of its graduate policies, available through the Office of Graduate Programs.  These policies apply to both Thesis and Non-Thesis students.

Thesis Option:

Master's degree students who are pursuing the Thesis Option should review the Thesis and Dissertation Checklist to ensure that they are on track for graduation.

Non-Thesis Option:

The comprehensive exam is an alternative to writing a thesis if a masters student elects to. The comprehensive examination is offered about the tenth week of classes every Fall and Spring semester. Students must be in their last term as a full-time student and have a 3.0 GPA to register. If students have completed their course work, they do not need to be enrolled in classes to take the comprehensive exam.
