Policies and Procedures
This section describes the university’s policies and procedures that affect graduate students and graduate programs. It is important to remember that these are the general policies; individual programs may have more rigorous standards for admission, program completion, or graduation. It is also important to remember that policies are not static. They are reviewed periodically, and sometimes, following appropriate university procedures, they are changed. Changes are printed annually in the Graduate Bulletin.
The University recognizes that individual circumstances may create a situation in which it is appropriate to grant an exception to a policy given in this Bulletin. Students seeking policy exceptions should consult the College of Graduate Studies.
