The MCDB handbook contains policies, rules, procedures and general information affecting the students and faculty of the Program.  Parts of this handbook refer to and parallel sections of the Graduate School Handbook.  Program regulations define or extend Graduate School policies as they relate specifically to MCDB students and faculty.  It should be noted that, although no regulation promulgated by the MCDB Program may contradict Graduate School regulations, some MCDB rules and standards are more stringent than the basic Graduate School policies. Where no specific policy has been stated by MCDB, Graduate School regulations apply.
