Note: If an applicant needs to change information regarding visa, residency, military status, citizenship, or degree objective (Masters, Credential, or Certificate), they can go into their Extended Profile and change information (located at the top right, hover over your CAS ID and name and a drop down menu will pop up, then choose: extended profile). Then the programs available based on their profile will display. For example, an in-progress applicant initially chose Master’s (MARA), but instead wants to do the certificate in strategic management, the applicant may update their extended profile and indicate that they intend to apply for a Certificate program.
