Forms & Policies

Excellence in graduate training is central to the research and teaching missions of our department. The success of our Ph.D. students is of paramount importance to us. The handbook, available here along with supplementary materials, is intended to provide a clear guide to the steps leading to the Ph.D. The majority of this handbook is specific to your academic experience in the Department of Chemistry. All Ph.D. students are responsible for familiarity with the requirements that are in place when they enter the program and should retain this handbook as an important reference. 

Information about additional university resources such as The Word (Carnegie Mellon’s student handbook), the Office of the Assistant Vice Provost for Graduate Education, the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs and others are included in Appendix A of this handbook. Be sure to review your requirements at the beginning of each semester.
