Integration

Supply chain management is integrated with business, engineering, and industrial studies. Six credits should be taken from each of the three disciplines. See an advisor for details.

  • Business: BUSADMIN and selected ISCM courses
  • Engineering: ENGRG and selected ISCM courses
  • Industrial Studies: INDUSTDY and selected ISCM courses

To earn your master’s degree, you must meet the following requirements:

  • All students must complete a minimum of 30 graduate credits.
  • At least 21 credits must be earned in graduate courses that are not cross-listed with undergraduate courses, and of those 21 credits, at least 15 credits must be earned at the 7000-level). These credits must be included in the student’s program planning form.
  • Courses in the 5000-6990 levels are open to graduate students for graduate credit, provided they have not previously taken the courses at the undergraduate level.
  • Students must have both an overall and a program GPA of at least 3.0. Graduate credits in which a grade lower than a C- has been earned will not be counted toward a degree; however, these lower grades will be reflected in the student’s grade point average. All credits attempted within a given program will be counted toward the GPA, even if credits for a particular course will not be counted toward program completion requirements.
    • Note: Programs may have stricter requirements than required of the School of Graduate Studies; students should review their official program plan for information.
  • Graduate students are allowed seven years from the date of admission into a master’s program to complete degree requirements.
  • No more than 12 credits can be transferred into a master’s degree program.
  • To be accepted for transfer, credits must be approved by more than one faculty member in the relevant program along with the dean of the School of Graduate Studies. Faculty must be 1) the program's coordinator; or 2) some mix of the student's advisor and a faculty member with expertise in the field.
  • Only courses taken at a nationally or regionally accredited institution recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation in which the student received a grade of B or higher will be accepted. Transfer credits will not be officially recorded until the student has successfully completed graduate work at UW-Platteville.
  • Enroll in one UW-Platteville course within the first year of being admitted into the program. Failure to do so will result in the discontinuation from the program.
  • Maintain degree progress by completing at least one UW-Platteville course every two years in order to remain under these catalog requirements. Failure to do so will result in discontinuation from the program.
