Graduate School Resources

  • img 1285

Applying to graduate school is a highly personalized endeavor. Faculty and other academic mentors serve as the best resource when beginning the process, evaluating institutions, and building the acumen required to compete for programs of interest to you.

The Office of Student & Post-Graduate Development (OSPGD) is also available to support you throughout the application process. This website offers suggested checklists, timelines, and other resources to students and alumni interested in further study through graduate work. Our student and alumni advising teams can help you draft and edit your written application and other materials, prepare for an interview, and more.


These resources serve as a very basic guide to help you with the graduate school search and application processes. The most reliable resources available to you are your professors and other advisers. We encourage you to meet with faculty mentors and with an adviser in OSPGD if you are considering applying to graduate school.
