Graduate Policy


As you begin your academic career, you may have questions on a range of topics from academic standards to graduation requirements.   To help you successfully navigate the policies and practices of the institution, we invite you to take some time to read the Graduate Policy Manual

Individual schools and departments may have additional policies particular to their graduate programs.  Please make sure you understand both; however, it is important to know that unit-specific policies do not override university-wide policies.   Please consider contacting our office at any time during your time at DU if you have questions about the university's policies and procedures. 

Take the Graduate Policy Quiz.
