MCDB Handbook

The student handbook is provided to give general guidance about important issues and activities that students will encounter during their graduate career.  Because the MCDB Interdepartmental Graduate Major continually seeks to improve, as does the entire graduate education program at Iowa State University, some changes may occur between the times of the annual printing of this document.  Students are expected to stay in close communication with their major professor and the MCDB Program Chair and Program Coordinator regarding program requirements, policies, and other important issues.  Students are encouraged to bring questions and comments to the Chair, program coordinator and members of the Executive Committee of MCDB at any time.

Graduate College Handbook

In addition to the MCDB Student Handbook, graduate students are expected to review and be familiar with the Graduate College Handbook.  The Graduate College Handbook provides further details about university requirements, policies and procedures.
