Council of Graduate Schools Resolution

Contents

Acceptance of an offer of financial support for the next academic year by a prospective or enrolled graduate student completes an agreement that both student and graduate school expect to honor.  Students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15; earlier deadlines for acceptance of such offers violate the intent of the Council of Graduate Schools Resolution regarding graduate scholars, fellows, trainees and assistants.  The text of the CGS Resolution may be downloaded through the link at the bottom of this page or here.  PennDesign is among the graduate schools that support this resolution.
