This might not be the best place to place this question so mods please move if need be! I am finishing up my Bachelors in Human Service from Ottawa University via distance learning in 8 weeks. I was hoping to start my Masters in Administration of Justice with a concentration in Criminal behavior via distance learning from Wilmington University. However I incorrectly assumed that my degree would be conferred much faster than it is going to be! My advisor just informed my that it is not going to be conferred until May 15th, 2010. I was hoping to start my Masters March 7th, 2010. I am wondering if any of you have had experience with being allowed to start your Masters program without your degree being conferred? I have spoken with my advisor and she did indicate that the registrar at the university would be more than happy to send Wilmington University a statement stating that I have indeed completed the requirements for my degree but that it would not be officially conferred until May. I am currently awaiting a call WU on if the will accept the above and let me start in March... Any one have any experience with this? Im a little annoyed to say the least as I was hoping to start in March and not have to wait until June! The reason I don't want to wait is that we are going to be a big move (possibly from MO to CA) in July or early August and I was hoping to be into a routine in my Masters level classes, if this make any sense!
