The Psychology Department is the largest department within the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS). As such, we adhere to the polices and procedures outlined by the Office of Graduate Academic Affairs. Furthermore, the Psychology Department and CHSS are governed by university policies, which are set forth in the annual University Catalog.
All documents/requests requiring the signature of the dean must first be approved by not only your major advisor but your Program Coordinator and the associate chair for Graduate Academic Affairs. Students should coordinate with their Advisors/Program Coordinators to obtain signatures and forward all paperwork to the Graduate Programs Coordinator (Room 2014, David King Hall). The Graduate Programs' Coordinator will obtain the signature of the associate chair and forward the request to the Office of Graduate Academic Affairs for review.
The college web page Policies and Procedures for Graduate Students has detailed information on college policies regarding Grading/Appeals, Warning/Termination/Dismissal, 998/999 Enrollment, Degree Time Limits, Course Overloads, Consortium Requests, Special Registration, Full-Time Classification, Transfer/Reduction of Credit, Advancement to Candidacy, Dissertation/Thesis Committees and Voluntary Resignation from a Degree Program.
