This section of the Graduate School Website provides information for chairs, graduate faculty and graduate program coordinators on the procedures for additions and modifications to EKU's graduate programs. The NEW Annotated Graduate Syllabus should be used as a guide in preparing syllabi for all graduate courses. The sub-links on the menu bar provide information and strategies for submitting requests for new courses, new programs, and course or program modifications through the Graduate Council.
