Graduate Council

The Graduate Council (GC) coordinates all academic policies and procedures at UCSC which bear on the conferring of higher degrees. In addition to reviewing proposals for new graduate programs and designated emphases, GC consults on block allocations for graduate support. The committee also coordinates graduate course approvals, academic appeals, and any changes to graduate degree requirements. Recent issues for GC include changes to graduate grading policies and the development of guidelines for Professional and Self-Supporting degree programs. GC meets every other week.
