Processes & Forms

Administrative activities such as orientation, enrollment, Title IX training, program of study, and other similar tasks are to be completed at your home university. Partner universities will accept the completion of these tasks at your home university. Your campus coordinator will help you get started.

Student Acknowledgment Form

Students enrolled in Great Plains IDEA courses are required to sign and submit a Student Acknowledgment Form (PDF) to be kept on file at the home university throughout your program. This form allows the exchange of information between the partnering universities. All information is shared through a secure, web-based database. Your campus coordinator will send you the Student Acknowledgment Form. Signed forms should be submitted to your campus coordinator.  

Title IX Mandatory Training for Students

Students may be required to complete the Title IX training provided by their home university. Consult with your campus coordinator for instructions regarding this training.

Program of Study (graduate students only)

Graduate students file a program/plan of study according to the policies and procedures of their home university graduate school. Academic advisors and/or campus coordinators can provide additional information about your home university requirements.

Graduation/Degree Completion

Review the Great Plains IDEA graduation checklist. At least one year before your anticipated graduation, you should contact your academic advisor and your campus coordinator.
