It is the responsibility of each student to become familiar with university and Graduate Studies academic policies and procedures, as well as degree requirements, graduation requirements, and all other aspects of satisfactory academic progress. Each student is assigned an academic advisor to assist in planning course schedules and give advice on timely graduation planning. However, the ultimate responsibility for understanding and completing degree and graduation requirements lies with the student. All students are held responsible for meeting the requirements for graduation as stated in the Graduate Catalog at the time of initial enrollment and completion of one or more graduate courses. Students who have questions should contact Graduate Studies.
