Grad Ed Toolkit
The Interactive CLAS Guide to Graduate Student Handbooks (PDF) is a comprehensive guide to the most essential content for graduate student handbooks. It is intended as a useful resource for departments; it does not constitute new policy. The guide may be used by program faculty and/or staff to develop a new graduate student handbook, or to update an existing handbook.
Word documents that may be integrated into an existing graduate student handbook:
- Key Offices at KU - A directory of key offices on campus for graduate students. For each office, a description of services and a link to the office's website is included.
- University Policies and Degree Requirements - A guide to University policies and requirements that most commonly affect graduate students. The document includes links to descriptive content on COGA or Graduate Studies webpages, as well as links to the KU Policy Library.
