Graduate Student Handbook
Graduate students are subject to the most current university rules and regulations. Returning students are subject to the current rules, policies, and regulations in effect at the time of their re-admission and thereafter.
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.
If you have questions about the requirements, policies, and procedures specific to your degree program/college, please ask one of the contact people for your program/college.
All students are responsible for knowing and following the policies in this Graduate School handbook.
