We’ve detailed the various policies that inform your graduate education, as well as the procedures for addressing the needs of our graduate students. As the authoritative resource and chief advocate for graduate education, the Graduate Division ensures the equitable administration of policies governing graduate studies across Berkeley’s 14 schools and colleges. As the administrative arm of the Academic Senate’s Graduate Council, we partner with the faculty and staff of each program and the deans of each school and college to maintain the world-renowned quality of Berkeley’s graduate education. If you’re a graduate student with questions about how a policy might impact your particular program of study, reach out to your Graduate Student Affairs Officer first. If they don’t know they answer to your question, they can reach out to our staff for support.
