Handbooks and Policies for Graduate Students
Graduate Student Handbooks
Each graduate program in the College of Information Studies has a handbook with university and iSchool policies and procedures that are specifically relevant to each graduate program. If you have a question that isn’t covered in the handbook, contact your program manager for more information.
The student handbook should be your first stop for information about program policies, course planning, and degree requirements. Students should use the handbook for the year they began the program (i.e., a student admitted for fall of 2018 should use the 2018-2019 handbook).
Policy and Administration
The Graduate School at the University of Maryland provides baseline policies and procedures for all graduate students. Additionally, the iSchool has established additional policies and procedures that are college-wide and oftentimes specific to your academic program. It is up to the student to familiarize themselves with the policies and procedures in The Graduate Catalog and in their own particular student handbook.
University of Maryland faculty and staff are committed to academic integrity, and we expect all students and scholars to abide by the Code
of Academic Integrity as detailed by the university. Students involved in academic dishonesty will be referred to the Office of Student Conduct.
