Graduate Policy Database


Graduate education has been a part of Florida State University for decades. The Graduate Policy Committee (GPC) is responsible for establishing new policies and revising existing policies that pertain to graduate education. Most of these policies are then incorporated into various documents e.g. the Graduate Bulletin, and Faculty Handbook, though some remain as standalone policies. To draw attention to key issues, the Dean of the Graduate School highlights important policies in an annual memo that is distributed to faculty, staff, and students. We have gathered together and posted on this website all original policy documents and pertinent secondary materials that pertain to graduate education at Florida State University. All of these policies were approved actions by the GPC.
