The Graduate Council has jurisdiction over the policies, procedures and requirements of graduate education. The Council establishes and revises admission standards, basic degree requirements, and general policies; approves all graduate faculty members, new programs, and courses; and periodically reviews all existing graduate programs. The creation of specific requirements of graduate programs and of individual student's programs are the responsibilities of the academic units, however, no academic unit has authority to waive or supersede the general policies of the Graduate Council.
