The Policy on Hiring a GA by HSC Faculty should be followed for hiring a graduate assistant (research, teaching, service) to perform services outside of the student’s dissertation research. These employment relationships are outside of the any specific Memoranda of Understanding that we have with graduate programs and that involve the training of students in their dissertation research.

The HSC Graduate Council link contains the latest minutes and agendas for the monthly graduate faculty meetings. These meetings provide a forum for communication of educational issues, establishing policies, and informing our faculty representatives to the WVU Graduate Council of the needs of our programs.

The Mentor Assurance Form can be used when a faculty member begins to advise a graduate student.  These reminders are designed to help promote good mentoring practices.

Policies and Forms links you to the forms required of graduate students and to the policies that are most commonly used in governing graduate education, especially those that differ from the graduate catalog.

The Program and Course Approvals link provides directions for applying for new programs or developing new courses. In addition, this link has a table of the graduation metrics used by the Board of Governors in evaluating program viability.
