Graduate School Policies

“The university reserves the right to change programs of study, academic requirements, the announced university calendar and other matters described herein without prior notice, in accordance with established procedures. Each graduate student should understand that published descriptions of degree requirements establish only minimum requirements. It is the prerogative of the graduate program to make changes in degree requirements at any time. Graduate students must meet university graduate student policies and individual program policies. In lieu of no specific EMU graduate program policy, the individual graduate department policies apply. This graduate catalog is descriptive and is not to be construed as a legal contract.”
