I’m a master's student with soon to be 32 credit hours of the 36 needed to graduate.
My university is suddenly not offering one of the last two courses I need to graduate. It was supposed to offered in Fall 2022 but it’s instead going to be offered in Fall 2023.
At least five of us are set to graduate in Fall 2022 but can't without this class. In my bioinformatics program, the required courses can be few and far between in terms of finding similar courses at different universities, thanks to the extra subjects included in my university’s version of most courses.
I talked to the dean, who spoke with the head of the department, and they’re telling me to speak with my advisor, but they know less than other people I’ve spoken with.
Are universities allowed to delay our graduation for a full year like this? It’s very frustrating. What options do I have for a timely graduation?
