Chapter 6: Requirements and Policies for Doctoral Degrees

Students are bound by the program and degree requirements in effect at their term of admission and are expected to be aware of these requirements. Students are not obligated to follow any subsequent changes to degree requirements unless the student has been Absent without Leave from the program (see Leave of Absence policy for details). Doctoral students should also review chapter 4 for more information about degree requirements.
