SLAT Student Handbook

The SLAT Student Handbook contains detailed descriptions of all degree requirements for the Ph.D. in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching including required coursework, examination policies, dissertation requirements, and many other important items. It is each student’s responsibility to be aware of and comply with all the policies found in the Ph.D. student handbook. Students should consult the Ph.D. handbook frequently, particularly prior to important milestones, to ensure that they are complying with all department and university policies.

Please note that the SLAT Executive Council makes periodic changes to the handbook. Students follow the Handbook that was in effect when they entered the SLAT program. Whenever possible, as policies change, students will have the option to adopt new policies or follow the policy as written during their term of entry into SLAT.
