Academic policies define what the institution expects from the students and what students may expect from the institution in terms of academic behavior. Graduate academic polices are developed and approved through the university's governance system by the Graduate Council. Graduate Council membership includes representation from both faculty and students.

As you probably already are aware, each Department has policies for graduate students in specific programs.  Listed here are University policies only, so be sure to also review your respective Department for their Department-specific requirements.  If you have any questions or concerns, please visit us at 223 Graff Main Hall or email us at
