This document summarizes the requirements for the Ph.D. and M.S. Degrees in Chemistry at The University of Georgia (UGA) and provides schedules and checklists for completing these requirements. Deadlines are given in semesters, which should be interpreted as "non-summer semesters after entering graduate school at UGA," unless otherwise noted.
The primary reference for rules and regulations regarding graduate students is The University of Georgia Graduate Bulletin. This Department of Chemistry handbook summarizes some of the more important rules from the Bulletin and clarifies their application for Chemistry students. Additional rules above and beyond those specified by the Graduate School are also outlined here, especially those regarding specific course requirements and deadlines. Questions regarding these requirements may be referred to the Graduate Coordinator or to the Graduate Program Administrator. If further information is required, the Graduate Coordinator or the Graduate Program Administrator will contact the Graduate School on your behalf.
