The graduate program and its timely completion is the sole responsibility of the student. From the time of their first enrollment, students must be registered each quarter until the completion of all degree requirements or apply for graduate “on leave” status. Students should familiarize themselves with the UW Graduate School Memo #9 which outlines the continuous enrollment and leave policies for all graduate students.
Students should always consult their Academic Advisor with degree program questions or inquiries regarding program modifications. All degree program changes must be submitted in writing and approved by the Graduate Program Coordinator and Interest Group Head.
Students should use MyPlan and DARS throughout their program to plan and track progress against degree requirements, and reference their program plans frequently.
