To all graduate students currently enrolled in this department, please note: Before you access the PDF version, via this link of the departmental TNS Graduate Student Handbook (herein also referred to as the Handbook), carefully go through the following instructions and disclaimers:

(1) The Handbook outlines the policies and procedures of graduate degree programs in the Department of Transnational Studies. It is mandatory for all graduate students currently enrolled in various programs of the department to (a) obtain a hard copy version of the Handbook from the department’s Graduate Studies Secretary; and (b) to complete the Receipt of Graduate Student Handbook form available on the forms page on this site.

(2) The availability to students of formal and/or informal advice from advisors, professors, etc. in this department does not relieve them of the sole responsibility of verifying the advice by accessing all relevant documented policies and procedures, as well as for completing necessary forms; initiating the formation of committees; honoring deadline dates at various points as they progress through their studies; and generally adhering to all departmental and U.B. Graduate School regulations. Therefore, students should carefully read and digest all relevant sections of the Handbook in conjunction with the Graduate School Policies and Procedures (available at the U.B. Graduate School website: http://grad.buffalo.edu/study/progress/policylibrary.html).

(3) If there is a discrepancy (inadvertent) between policies and procedures indicated in the Handbook and any that may be indicated on the pages of this site, the policies and procedures indicated in the Handbook will take absolute precedence.

(4) If there is a discrepancy (inadvertent) between policies and procedures indicated in the Handbook and those of U.B. Graduate School, the policies and procedures of U.B. Graduate School will take absolute precedence.
