OHIO University Graduate Catalog 2005-2007

The fees, programs, and requirements contained in this catalog are effective with the 2005 fall quarter. They are necessarily subject to change at the discretion of Ohio University. The student assumes responsibility for knowing University, college, and departmental regulations and for complying with all applicable procedures. In no case will a requirement be waived or an exception granted because the student pleads ignorance of the requirement or asserts that her/his advisor or another authority did not inform the student of the requirement. While the personnel of the Office of Graduate Studies and the student’s advisor will endeavor to aid in every way possible, the responsibility for meeting requirements stated in this catalog rests with the student.

Ohio University is an affirmative action institution.

Ohio University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities. The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies: Assistant to the President, Office for Institutional Equity, Ohio University, Athens OH 45701, Telephone: 740.593.2620.
