A Program of Work is a list of courses required to complete a particular degree. The Graduate School has a system to track Program of Work completion for students. However, since that system lacks some helpful details about courses, EDP provides cohort-specific Program of Work documents for students to use for course tracking and advising.
Programs of Work may vary between cohort years. Refer only to your specific entering-year's Program of Work. During advising, your program's Area Chair may make course substitution recommendations if a course required on your Program of Work is no longer offered.
Accessing your Program of Work
When you start your program in EDP, you and your faculty advisor are given access to a digital folder in UT Box (UT's online filing system) to house your Program of Work document. This folder should also contain all your approved course waivers and any other documents related to the Program of Work.
Student entering before 2020: a Program of Work for your entering-year was already added to your UTBox folder. Access it via the link above.
Students entering 2020 and later: download a blank copy of your year-specific Program of Work to your UTBox folder during Orientation.
The blank Programs of Work below are for students beginning the program in 2020 ONLY. Students who entered the program prior to 2020 already have a year-specific Program of Work in UTBox, at the link above. Students must use ONLY the Program of Work for their specific entering year.

Updating your Program of Work
It is your responsibility to keep your Program of Work document updated. Be sure to update it each semester prior to course advising. If you are not sure what you have taken, you can look up your courses via your Grade Report online if needed.
Make sure that all approved waiver forms have been uploaded to your UT Box Program of Work folder. If any are missing, contact the EDP Graduate Coordinator.
Note: The Program of Work document housed in UT Box is not an official UT document. It is a guide used to help students track their progress through the program and for advising purposes.
Course Requirements on the EDP Website
Program Requirements for each area within EDP are listed on the EDP Website. However, the EDP Website provides information primarily for prospective students (as opposed to the Student Handbook, which is the resource for current students). Therefore program requirements listed online are typically specific to the most recent entering year, and are noted as such online. Program requirements may differ between cohorts dependent on program changes - you must always defer to your specific individual Program of Work for course requirements. Your faculty advisor, Area Chair, and Graduate Advisor can also provide clarification when needed.
