How Can We Help?

Graduate Student Programs staff is dedicated to assisting students navigating their graduate career within the School of Natural Sciences. Graduate students play vital roles in the discovery of new knowledge and in helping our undergraduates share in those discoveries — making graduate students crucial to the University’s research and teaching mission. To that end, our goal is to provide an inclusive and supportive environment in which all our students can reach their greatest intellectual potential. From recruitment and admissions to academic requirements and student funding, we provide information and guidance on an array of policies, procedures and services. In other words, we are here to help students through every step of their journey here.
