Current Graduate Students

Current graduate students should review the Graduate Student Handbook and meet with their advisor or another member of the graduate committee for most questions.

Graduate Student Handbook

The CS Graduate Student Handbook is updated each semester with details about the department, degree programs, academic regulations, and other information of interest. It supplements the General Announcements by providing detailed information for computer science. Please contact the graduate committee for further questions or areas in the handbook that require clarification.

Computer Science Graduate Student Association

The  CS GSA represents the department's graduate students and promotes research, collaboration, and communication among the graduates students.

Rice Center for Teaching Excellence

The Center for Teaching Excellence seeks to transform teaching through mentoring, innovative practices, collaboration, scholarship, and advocacy. The CTE actively engages faculty, staff, students, and community partners, and brings them into conversation to achieve excellence in teaching and learning. For current graduate students in the Computer Science department, the CTE offers resources for both actively improving your skills as an educator in the department and planning for your future as an educator in industry or academia.
