Graduate Student Handbook

The purpose of VSE’s Graduate Student Handbook is to provide guidance by clearly communicating VSE-specific policies, processes, and criteria. The handbook is supplemental to University Policy as well as the Volgenau Graduate Policies section of the University Catalog and cross-referenced where appropriate. The handbook and all VSE-specific policies are available on Blackboard (public).
