Policy Guidelines and Appeals

  1. to facilitate orderly progress of graduate students,
  2. to meet expectations of accrediting agencies, other graduate schools and the Board of Regents,
  3. to provide a common standard and,
  4. to encourage development of quality programs.

Each graduate student has the responsibility of being aware of The Office of Graduate Studies policies described in the current Graduate Bulletin. Every effort will be made by Graduate Studies personnel, program coordinators and assistants and faculty advisers to aid a student in understanding the pertinent policies.
