Graduate Student Handbook | Requirements for the Degree

Requirements for the Degree

Requirements for each of the degrees offered at the University of Arkansas are set by the individual programs as consistent with the policies of the Graduate Council. The requirements of the Graduate School for each degree may be found in the Graduate School Catalog.

Students whose research will require approval by the Institutional Review Board (for research with human subjects), the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (for research with animals), the Biosafety Committee (for research with recombinant DNA), the Radiation Safety Committee, or the Toxic Substance Committee, will be required to receive approval from these committees before beginning their research. If such approval has not been received, the student will not be granted a degree. For more information about these committees, please see the website of the Office of Research Compliance.
