Academic Policy and Procedures
The graduate catalog is the official record of institutional academic policy relating to graduate students and programs. The catalog contains up-to-date information about institutional officers, program requirements, and academic procedures and regulations such as academic standing, course withdrawal, grade changes, off-campus transfer credit and more.
Some departments and programs also have handbooks that describe academic expectations and procedures. Please request these materials directly from the program/department.
