ointed tlBOn of the Graduate School after he and the

Graduate Council have studied the credentials sub--
mitted in support of the proposed members.

Associate members are appointed by the Dean
of the Graduate School upon nomination by the
Director of Graduate Study. Associate membership
is limited to non-tenured assistant professors who
hold the doctorate, have been full-time members
of the faculty for at least one year, and have ini-
tiated a significant research effort. This member-
ship may continue no more than five years. As-
sociate members are authorized to teach graduate
courses, direct masters’ theses, serve on and co-
chair doctoral committees, and attend and partici-
pate in Graduate Faculty meetings. They do not
have voting privileges in the Graduate Faculty.

Administrative officers assigning teaching and
other duties to members of the Graduate Faculty
who are taking an active part in the graduate pro-
gram (i.e., are heavily engaged in directing theses,
carrying on productive research, etc.) should make

The Dean and His Office

The Dean of the Graduate School is charged with
the administration of the policies adopted by the
Graduate Faculty and the University Senate relating
to graduate studies. He presides over all meetings
of the Graduate Faculty and calls meetings of this
faculty whenever he thinks it advisable or whenever
requested to do so by one-fourth of the member—
ship. He makes recommendations to the Graduate
Faculty respecting the requirements for advanced
degrees, the regulations necessary to insure a high
standard of graduate work, and all other aspects of
the graduate program. He appoints a committee
for each graduate student, arranges for final exam-
inations, advises students with regard to their
studies and the requirements of the Graduate




School, and in all other ways administers the grad-
uate program in the interests of efficient instruc—
tion and the highest attainment possible on the
part of each graduate student. He is responsible
for determining and certifying to the Registrar can—
didates who have fulfilled requirements for ad—
vanced degrees.

The President and the Dean of the Graduate
School are members ex officio of all committees of
the Graduate Faculty.

The Graduate Council

The Graduate Council is composed of ii mem-
bers and the Dean of the Graduate School, who is
chairman. There are eight elected representatives
and three members appointed by the Dean of the
Graduate School. One of the elected members is
from the College of Agriculture, two from the Col-
lege of Arts and Sciences, one from the College of
Business and Economics, two from the College of
Education, one from the College of Engineering,
and one from the College of Medicine. The mem—
ber or members from each of these colleges are
elected by the Graduate Faculty members in that
college. The term of office of the elected and ap—
pointed members is three years, and no member
may succeed himself until three years have elapsed
since the completion of his last term.

The Graduate Council approves or disapproves
proposals concerning courses offered for graduate
credit, and advises and lends assistance to the Dean
in his execution of policies and regulations deter-
mined by the Graduate Faculty. Specifically, the

]. Studies requests of departments relating to pro-
posed graduate programs.

Directors of Graduate Study FOCL


A Director of Graduate Study serves as “moral

It should be clearly understood that a graduate
student may not be able to begin immediately a
full graduate program leading to the degree he de—
sires; it may be necessary for him to satisfy pre-
requisites which he omitted in his undergraduate
curriculum. Deficiences are determined by the de-
partment in which the major work is to be done.
Ordinarily, a graduate student may begin a full pro-
gram in any field in which he has a balanced under-
graduate major or its equivalent.

Admission to the Graduate School entitles a stu-
dent to take such courses as he desires, provided
he has the necessary prerequisites. However, ad-
mission does not automatically make a student a
candidate for a graduate degree.

Attendance in the Graduate School at the Uni-
versity of Kentucky is not a right. It is a privilege
which may be withdrawn by the University or any
area of graduate study if it is deemed necessary by
the Dean of the Graduate School in order to safe-
guard the University’s standards.


A senior in the University of Kentucky lacking
no more than six credit hours for graduation and
having an undergraduate average of at least 2.5‘
on all work attempted may register in the Graduate
School with the consent of his college dean and
the Dean of the Graduate School. Approval of the
appropriate director of graduate study is required
if the student is to be an applicant for a degree.
The total load of such a student may not exceed
l2 credit hours. Graduate credit will be allowed
for each credit hour of graduate work beyond the
six or fewer credit hours needed to complete under-





graduate requirements. The incidental fee is that
Of a full-time student in the school in which more
than half of the work is taken. In cases where the
load is evenly divided between the schools, the
larger fee is assessed. Requirements for the under—
graduate degree must be completed during the se-
mester in which the student is allowed to register
for part-time graduate work. Students desiring to
enroll in the Graduate School under these conditions
must fill out in duplicate a petition listing the
course or courses to be taken in order to complete
their undergraduate requirements. The petition
must be approved by both deans concerned.


Members of the faculty, excepting those in the
Community College System, having a rank higher
than that Of Instructor may not be considered as
candidates for degrees in the discipline in which
they are employed or above the Master’s degree
at the University.


It is the responsibility of the student to inform
himself concerning, and to observe all regulations
and procedures required by the course he is pur-
suing. In no case will a regulation be waived or
an exception granted because a student pleads
ignorance of the regulation or asserts that he was
not informed Of it by his adviser or other authority.
Therefore, the student should become familiar with
the Graduate School Bulletin, including (I) the sec-
tion presenting the requirements for the degree
which he plans to take, and (2) the offerings and
requirements of his major department.

The student should consult the Director of Grad-
uate Study Of the department in which he will do




his work concerning course requirements, Glby t
ficiencies, the planning of a program, and shich
regulations. Departments may have degree rial.
ments that are not listed in the Bulletin. as o

earn a g: adviser. D grades are not given to graduate

graduatats. An ”incomplete” (I), unless the Dean of

the Graduate School grants an extension of time,
must be removed within one calendar year after the
close of the term in which the l is assigned if the
student is to receive credit.

Courses numbered at the 600 or 700 level shall
be taught only by members of the Graduate Fac-
ulty or by such other instructors as are approved by
the Graduate Dean.


During the first 10 class days of the term a grad-
uate student may drop a regular course without a
grade, provided he has the approval of his instruc-
tor, his Director of Graduate Study, and the Dean.
Regular courses may not be dropped later in the
term without the assignment of a grade: W if a
student withdraws passing, E if he is failing. How-
ever, only under very special circumstances may he
be allowed to withdraw from a class within five
weeks of the final examination period.


The official grades of graduate students are
recorded in the office of the Registrar. The Regis-
trar provides official transcripts on the same basis
as for undergraduate students. Also, he provides
the Dean with the grades of all students in order
that the Dean may be able to advise students con-
cerning their programs.

The grading of graduate students is done ac—
cording to the following scale:

A—high achievement 4 grade points per credit

B—satisfactory achievement 3 grade points per credit
C—minimum passing grade 2 grade points per credit
E—failure 0 grade points per credit
l—incomplete see explanation below

S—satisfactory see explanation below





A grade of | (incomplete) may be assigned to a
graduate student if a part of the work of a course
remains undone and there is a reasonable possibil—
ity that a passing grade will result from completion
of the work. No student may graduate with an I
on his record without the permission of his adviser
and the approval of the Dean of the Graduate

A grade of S (satisfactory work in progress) may
be recorded for students in graduate courses which
carry no credit and in graduate seminars, inde-
pendent work courses, and research courses which
extend beyond the normal limits of a semester or
summer term. The grade may not be given to a
student in a course carrying credit if the student
has done unsatisfactory work or if he has failed
to do a reasonable amount of work. The project
must be substantially continuous in its progress.
When the work has been completed, a final grade
will be substituted for the S.

Once a grade (other than an I or S) has been re—
ported to the Registrar’s Office, it may not be
changed unless an error was made at the time the
grade was given and recorded, and then only upon
the written unanimous approval of the instructor,
the Registrar, and the Dean of the Graduate School.


Certain research courses carry no credit hours
or grades but do contribute to the residence require-
ments of graduate degrees. For these courses the
credit equivalent is stated in the course descriptions.


The total term load of a student is the sum of
all credits and credit equivalents being carried. The
normal load of a graduate student during any see



mester is l2 credit hours or equivalent amen,- (
no circumstances may it exceed 15 credit hand

is six credit hours and the maximum nine. SSHO
