What to Expect
Now that you have been admitted to graduate school, you may have all sorts of questions about what to do next. This guide will help you navigate the start to your graduate career and also provides long-term planning advice to help you complete your degree.
Attending graduate school is very different from an undergraduate experience. Graduate School is self-directed. Students are responsible for learning the policies and procedures necessary to earn the graduate degree. Students can expect academic rigor, including a higher level of reading and writing.
There are also wonderful opportunities that are part of the graduate student experience. Students often develop collegial relationships with other students. There are opportunities to conduct and present research, choose areas of research specific to interests, participate in department and college committees and development opportunities.
