Change of Thesis Option

Change of Thesis Option. A master's degree candidate is allowed to change from the thesis to the non-thesis option (or vice versa) only once. These changes require approval of the Department Head/Graduate Program Director and the Chair of the student's Advisory Committee. Use this form: http://graduateschool.vt.edu/content/dam/graduateschool_vt_edu/GAAPforms/Thesis_Option_Change_Request.pdf. Such changes often require changes in the coursework and Plan of Study.
