Section 3: Graduate Academic Policies

The academic policies described in this section apply to all graduate degree and certificate programs and are approved by the Graduate Council and administered by the Graduate College. Under this general regulatory umbrella, each graduate program is locally administered by an academic unit assigned by the university. The academic unit may be a department, a college, or a specially appointed unit consisting of graduate faculty members from multiple departments or colleges. Although an academic unit may develop local regulations for a specific graduate program under its control, the local regulations must be consistent with these academic policies and are therefore subject to review and approval by the Graduate Council. It is the responsibility of all graduate faculty members and graduate students to become thoroughly familiar with all policies that govern the graduate program in which they participate.
