Registration and Courses

Students in programs other than TTP should keep in mind the requirements of their specific programs. Below we list courses offered through TTP which are available to students in any program.

Student Funding

Forms for Transportation Graduate Students

All Students

Graduate Study List for New Students

Required of NEW STUDENTS ONLY, this is a form asking for the list of classes being taken the first quarter. The student should complete it, have their major professor sign it, and turn in to Annemarie Schaaf within the first two weeks of classes. The purpose is to ensure that communication between you and a faculty member takes place very soon after you start here.  Although there is often a natural major professor based on your research interests and/or funding source (i.e., a Graduate Student Research position funded by a faculty member), in cases where students come on their own funds, they can often flounder for lack of a strong connection to faculty.  There is nothing binding about the major professor selected at this early time; the major professor can change as your interests, and other opportunities, evolve.

Master’s Degree Students

Required of ALL STUDENTS, this is a form that lists all the courses taken (or to be taken) to fulfill the UC Davis graduate degree. The student should complete it and have it signed by a Guidance Committee comprising three Transportation Technology and Policy (TTP) faculty. An initial Program of Study form is to be filed by the end of the second quarter, but it can be revised as needed at key points, especially when advancing to candidacy. Note: The philosophy behind the Guidance Committee is to provide a mechanism for you to obtain early input from a variety of faculty members, to begin to establish relationships with them, and to benefit from their diverse perspectives throughout your studies. Obviously it will defeat the purpose of this procedure if you don’t file a POS until the last possible moment in your studies.
