PLAN Workshop: Unwritten (and sometimes written) Rules of Graduate School

Graduate students are responsible for making sure they’re aware of written rules and policies related to a number of areas of graduate school: academic guidelines and deadlines, rules of a lab or clinical hours, assistantship and fellowship awards, among others. However, there are any number of unwritten rules and polices of which graduate students are unaware. This lack of awareness or understanding can serve as a real obstacle. In this session, participants will be reminded of the rules and policies they should know, but the majority of the session will be spent discussing some of the unwritten rules and policies, how to find out about others, and strategies for following them.
