MFA Handbook

Each year, the MFA Handbook is updated to reflect program changes, current calendars, and overall enhancements. The handbook includes program history, degree requirements, various policies, and more about the MFA Exam (for poets) and MFA Thesis (all students). The MFA Advising Sheet is most useful for current students to audit their credit status within the program, a checklist if you will, as well as for prospective students to gain a one-page snapshot of the MFA program's academic details. 

While primarily intended for current students to help them navigate the MFA program, prospective students may find the "deep dive" into the program helpful.
