The Office of Graduate Studies is within the division of Academic Affairs. Graduate Studies provides oversight for graduate education in the university. We administer graduate assistantships, most of the graduate fellowships, records, policies and other procedures relating to graduate students. Applications for admission are collected by the Office of Admissions and then forwarded to the Graduate Program Director where a recommendation is then sent to the College and Graduate Dean.
Under the direction of the Dean of Graduate Studies, Nancy plans and coordinates the activities of the University Office of Graduate Studies, including assistance with Graduate Council, policy and procedure development, recruitment and orientation of students, general graduate studies information and inquiries, written comprehensive exams, assistantship and fellowship awards, and thesis submission.
