UW Graduate School

Policies & Procedures

The Graduate School maintains a set of policies that define and govern the terms under which graduate students pursue and successfully complete their degrees. These policies are updated from time to time, as necessary; please review the most recent policy or policies. If you have any questions, please contact the Graduate School at 206.543.5900.

Members of the UW graduate community (deans, directors, chairs, graduate program coordinators, graduate program assistants, GPSS officers, and Graduate School staff) can suggest new Graduate School policies or revisions to existing policies. Policy requests will be reviewed by the Graduate School Policy Review and Implementation Committee and policy recommendations will be sent to the Graduate School Dean for approval after stakeholder input has been evaluated.
