The Graduate Division assists graduate students with degree milestones, proper dissertation and thesis procedures, graduate examinations, and more. Looking for advising?

Here’s how to get started:

1. Contact Your Department First

Your department initiates nearly all of the actions you will need to take and advises you on specific program requirements and details. In addition, documents often require the signature of your department’s Head Graduate Advisor.
