Student Responsibilities

As a student, you are responsible for the following tasks:

  • Read the entire Policy Studies web site.
  • Contact the IAS Graduate Office for general advising or answers to specific questions.
  • Contact the Community Relations Manager to explore internship opportunities or career pathways.
  • Regularly consult the degree completion requirements to ensure that you are making satisfactory progress toward degree completion.
  • Register on time for appropriate required and elective courses.
  • Submit the master’s degree request by the deadline during the quarter of degree completion. Note: neglecting this step will result in the need to register for an additional quarter even though you may have completed all degree requirements.
  • Confer with a faculty advisor if you are interested in registering for elective courses outside of your program, and then submit a Petition for Outside Coursework.
  • Make sure your contact information is up to date in your MyUW profile.
