GSAS Policies

GSAS Policies detail the regulations, rules, and procedures that apply to students, including departmental-specific requirements. Students are responsible for familiarizing themselves with the policies and following the procedures outlined.

GSAS strives to provide students with timely, accurate, and clear information. If you need help understanding a specific policy, please contact the office that administers that policy (listed at the bottom of every page).

Policies and procedures are reviewed and updated annually. At times, a review of academic, financial, or other considerations may lead to changes in policies mid-year. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences reserve the right to make changes at any time.

COVID-19 Policy 

GSAS retains the discretion to apply its considered judgment to the question of how best to pursue its educational programs and protect the health and safety of our community during the COVID-19 crisis. GSAS Policies may be adapted at this time and changes will be noted on the relevant policy page and summarized on the Emergency Policy Amendments page.
