Forms & Policies
Forms & Policies
The Office of Graduate studies policies have been designed and have evolved with the following goals intended:
- to facilitate the orderly progress of graduate students,
- to meet expectations of accrediting agencies, other graduate schools and the Board of Regents,
- to provide a common standard and,
- to encourage the development of quality programs.
A graduate student is responsible for how to find and being aware of the Office of Graduate Studies’ official policies. These are found in the biennial bulletin published in every even-numbered year.
Every effort will be made by Graduate Studies staff, program coordinators and assistants, and faculty advisers to aid a student in understanding the policies as they apply to each individual.
Should a graduate student encounter circumstances that necessitate a withdrawal from all courses in a semester/term, read this website and complete the WITHDRAWAL FORM to initiate the withdrawal process. If you have trouble accessing the form, log into Office 365 first.
Be aware of the following about a semester/term withdrawal.
- Talk with the program coordinator/advisor about the withdrawal. The coordinator/advisor needs to approve the request. Only requests with details/documentation outlining extenuating circumstances will be given consideration for a refund of tuition/fees if the request is after a refund deadline.
- A withdrawal from all courses does not mean an automatic refund of tuition and fees. Please review the refund dates and restrictions on the Student Accounts/Financial Services website to know whether any refund is possible.
You can find information about student conduct here.
