Graduate program handbooks

All changes to Graduate handbooks must be approved by the Graduate School. If you are a graduate director and you wish to update an existing handbook or submit a new handbook for approval, please complete the change request form below.

The purpose of the graduate handbook is to provide guidance to both students and faculty for facilitating the progression of students to degree completion. The handbook should provide the necessary information for students to understand the requirements, expectations, and opportunities associated with both their specific graduate program and the Graduate School. 

Outlined below is the template for the minimum required information for handbooks from all graduate programs. However, the handbook should also include any additional information deemed helpful or necessary by each graduate program. Information in boxes outline Graduate School policies that should be included in the handbook.
