Students should carefully read university publications and information, as it is the individual student's responsibility to meet all Department, College of Education, and Graduate School deadlines and requirements. Two important publications are the Graduate School Catalog and Graduate Studies in the College of Education: A Guide for Students and Advisors.
The Graduate School Catalog of the University of Maryland contains the official rules and regulations of the University.
The document Graduate Studies in the College of Education: A Guide for Students and Advisors contains more detailed information on graduate program policies of the College of Education and can be obtained in the Office of Student Services, Room 1210, Benjamin Building.
Students are also encouraged to read College and Department newsletters and bulletins to stay apprised of department and College activities, opportunities, and any changes in requirements or procedures.Some other useful information:
