The student handbook is the official guide for policies and procedures governing student progress in their graduate degree program. These handbooks provide a guideline for successful completion of the psychology program. These policies and procedures do change do change periodically.
If a policy changes after a student has already started a program, the student has the choice of following the policies that were in effect when they started or the new policy.
The Program of Study is the most accurate way for students to audit their progress as they proceed through the program. When checking your program of study, make sure you are checking the year you started in the psychology department.
