Graduate School Academic Policies

The general policies, procedures and requirements for advanced degrees are stated above; however, each program has specific degree requirements. These specific requirements are detailed in the program descriptions that follow this section. These requirements must be consulted so that the graduate student can be fully apprised of the conditions he/she must meet in order to receive an advanced degree. The policies and regulations described in this catalog cannot be superseded or invalidated by either oral or written agreement with faculty, staff, or administrators unless a variance is confirmed in writing by the Vice Provost for Graduate Affairs, in consultation with the Graduate Council.
