Information for Current Graduate Candidates
Master's and PhD candidates can find the information they need on advising, degree plans, comprehensive exams, financial aid, and more. Below are some policies common to both groups. For information specific to your degree program, please select the appropriate link on the left.
Students may appeal any academic decision, including admissions decisions, course grades, and results of comprehensive examinations. To appeal, students should first present their reasons for appealing to the original decision maker, i.e. faculty member, faculty committee, or administrator. If the student remains dissatisfied with the result of the appeal, s/he may appeal next to the Associate Dean for Graduate Studies, then to the Dean of the School of Education, and then to the Dean of the Graduate School. Students may also utilize the Boulder Campus Ombudsman in Willard Hall. For more information, see www.colorado.edu/Ombuds
All doctoral and masters students are encouraged to apply for need-based financial aid. The funds available to the University are determined by the number of applicants. The Office of Financial Aid in conjunction with the Graduate School awards financial aid in the form of grants and work-study jobs on the basis of both need and merit criteria.
All students in courses and programs in the School of Education are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Cheating, plagiarism, illegitimate possession and disposition of papers and examinations, alteration, forgery or falsification of official records, and similar acts, or the attempt to engage in such acts are grounds for suspension and/or expulsion from the University.
