Forms, Timelines & Handbook

Graduate Handbook

This handbook was developed as an informal guide for the convenience of our graduate students. Formally approved policies for the program can be found in UCR’s General Catalog.

Degree Timelines

These timelines help students visualize a path-to-degree for both the Ph.D. and the “incidental master’s” (for students entering without an M.A.). They also appear in the Handbook.
