Graduate Student Resources
The Graduate School has a helpful Current Student Resources page where they publish a detailed Academic Calendar with Deadlines, Forms for adding/dropping courses late and requesting a leave of absence, and many additional resources for graduate students. Listed is also a helpful New Student Road Map to follow when first arriving at Stony Brook which includes information about orientation, housing and obtaining New York residency.
