An advising syllabus offers many benefits that can enhance our work with and for students. In addition, it can be the catalyst that leads to important explorations and questions about the role of advising on our campuses. Advisors often help students navigate between curricular and co-curricular issues; an advising syllabus is one way we can help students close the gap between the two. An advising syllabus can support students' active engagement in their education instead of simply receiving information, students are explicitly expected and encouraged to fully participate in the advising relationship.



Your catalog provides you with important information regarding graduate education at UT including admissions information, academic regulations, and related policies.

Graduate students are expected to become familiar with the academic regulations of the University and the specific requirements of their graduate program. The student is solely responsible for complying with all regulations of the University, the College of Graduate Studies and the department of instruction, and for meeting all requirements for the degree. The student should consult with their advisor on a regular basis to ensure that they remain on track within the degree program or in the event that there are any questions concerning the requirements for the degree.

You can find the Graduate Catalogs for both the College of Graduate Studies and John B. and Lillian E. Neff College of Business and Innovation on the Provost’s Office website

Tuition and Fees

Each graduate student receives bill notifications electronically via their University of Toledo-assigned e-mail address instead of paper invoices. The e-statements will be posted by the date designated in the “important dates” of the Office of the Treasurer’s website.

The Student Code of Conduct should be read broadly and is not designed to define misconduct in exhaustive terms. The Student Code of Conduct specifies the rights and responsibilities of the students, student organizations, the university, and the rights of other parties to the procedure.

The Division of Student Affairs strives to enhance the student experience by addressing the needs of students through collaborations, programs, and services. In conjunction with the University of Toledo, John B. and Lillian E. Neff College of Business and Innovation recognizes a student’s right to due process. The University understands the need to assure that student grievances about faculty actions are evaluated fairly and equitably and, for this purpose, UT has an established academic grievance policy and procedures for graduate students.  Prior to filing a university grievance form, students should follow the internal process for John B. and Lillian E. Neff College of Business and Innovation. After John B. and Lillian E. Neff College of Business and Innovation ruling has been determined, students may still pursue the university process if they so desire.
