Graduate School Handbook

The Graduate Handbook clarifies minimum university-level requirements and policies that apply to all graduate students throughout the University of Cincinnati. Beyond these, each student is also expected to adhere to requirements, policies, and procedures specific to his or her own degree program and college.

The 2015-16 Graduate Handbook includes the content formerly published in the Graduate School Procedure Manual: For Graduate Program Coordinators and Graduate Program Directors.
