Handbook for Graduate Study

The 2020-2021 Handbook for Graduate Study can be found here

The Handbook for Graduate Study focuses on departmental rules and procedures related to the graduate program, such as procedures related to comprehensive examinations, prospectus defenses, evaluation of graduate students, and so forth.  Program requirements and university rules and procedures that apply to all graduate students at WVU can be found in the university's Graduate Catalog at http://catalog.wvu.edu/graduate.

The Handbook for Graduate Study is updated once per year.  Rules changes that go into effect prior to a handbook revision are communicated to students by the Director of Graduate Studies, and may be listed below.
