Updates to Graduate Education Policies

The following graduate education policies have been reviewed in accordance with the University’s comprehensive review process. The updated versions, now in effect, are posted on the University Policy Library web site:

The comprehensive review was conducted by graduate faculty, students, and staff of the Graduate Education Council (GEC) policy sub-committee, and included review and recommendations by numerous stakeholders, including the GEC, SCEP, and FCC. None of the policies required substantive revision.

Please note that although the review of the Application of Graduate Credits to Degree Requirements policy has been completed, implementation details have not yet been finalized. The existing version of the policy will continue to be in effect until further notice.

If you have questions, please email the policy contact, Karen Starry, at gepolicy@umn.edu.
