Faculty Council is the governing body for the academic affairs of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Faculty Council and its sub-committees determine policy on academic matters, reviews performance of graduate programs, and formulates plans for the academic development of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Its members include representatives from each of the Faculties including the University of King's College, and representatives from the Dalhousie Postdoctoral Society (DPS), and the Dalhousie Association of Graduate Students (DAGS).

Detailed information about particular programs can be found in the academic unit entries in the subsequent sections of this calendar or obtained from academic unit web or print publications. It is the responsibility of all graduate students to familiarize themselves with the regulations that govern the conditions of their programs of study at the University. Except where noted, Faculty of Graduate Studies regulations take precedence over Faculty/academic unit regulations. The Faculty of Graduate Studies regulations are subject to change.

The Faculty of Graduate Studies forms are available on the Faculty of Graduate Studies website at dal.ca/grad. Forms are updated on a regular basis (may require log-in access).
