Graduate Handbook


The SSPB 2020-2021 Graduate Student Handbook has been developed as a reference guide to all processes that will occur at the different stages of graduate studies in the SSPB program.

In addition to being in agreement with the regulation stated in this SSPB handbook, students must also be in agreement with the General Announcements and the Code of Conduct. In cases where there is conflicting information, university-wide regulations take precedence over SSPB regulations, which take precedence over research group regulations. When in doubt, students should seek help first at the SSPB program level (Advisor, Program Administrator, Chair of Graduate Advising, and/or Program Director) and then at the central administration level (Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies).
